I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life?
So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.
My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
1 Samuel 18:8
And Saul was very wroth, and the saying displeased him; and he said, They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands: and what can he have more but the kingdom?
And hast not suffered me to kiss my sons and my daughters? thou hast now done foolishly in so doing.
The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
