Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 4:8 - There is one who is alone, and he has neither son nor brother. There is no end to all of his labor, neither are his eyes satisfied with wealth. For whom then, do I labor, and deprive my soul of enjoyment? This also is vanity, yes, it is a miserable business.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 4:15 - I saw all the living who walk under the sun, that they were with the youth, the other, who succeeded him.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 4:16 - There was no end of all the people, even of all them over whom he was -- yet those who come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and a chasing after wind.
