Yet no one knows what will happen because who can tell him what will happen?
For who knows what is good for man in life, in the few days of his futile life that he spends like a shadow? Who can tell man what will happen after him under the sun?
Yet the fool multiplies words.
No one knows what will happen,
and who can tell anyone what will happen after him?
I have seen that there is nothing better than for a person to enjoy his activities because that is his reward. For who can enable him to see what will happen after he dies?
In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity, consider: God has made the one as well as the other, so that man cannot discover anything that will come after him.
There is no remembrance of those who came before;
and of those who will come after
there will also be no remembrance
by those who follow them.
