Wealth Is Not the Goal of Life

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:1 - There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men:

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:2 - A man to whom God has given riches and wealth and honor, so that he lacks nothing for himself of all he desires; yet God does not give him power to eat of it, but a foreigner consumes it. This is vanity, and it is an evil affliction.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:3 - If a man begets a hundred children and lives many years, so that the days of his years are many, but his soul is not satisfied with goodness, or indeed he has no burial, I say that a stillborn child is better than he—

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:4 - for it comes in vanity and departs in darkness, and its name is covered with darkness.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:5 - Though it has not seen the sun or known anything, this has more rest than that man,

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:6 - even if he lives a thousand years twice—but has not seen goodness. Do not all go to one place?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:7 - All the labor of man is for his mouth,
And yet the soul is not satisfied.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:8 - For what more has the wise man than the fool?
What does the poor man have,
Who knows how to walk before the living?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:9 - Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of desire.
This also is vanity and grasping for the wind.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:10 - Whatever one is, he has been named already,
For it is known that he is man;
And he cannot contend with Him who is mightier than he.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:11 - Since there are many things that increase vanity,
How is man the better?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 6:12 - For who knows what is good for man in life, all the days of his vain life which he passes like a shadow? Who can tell a man what will happen after him under the sun?
