Chapter 2

  1. 1. I said
    H559
    in mine heart,
    H3820
    Go to now,
    H3212
    I will prove
    H5254
    thee with mirth,
    H8057
    therefore enjoy
    H7200
    pleasure:
    H2896
    and, behold, this also is vanity.
    H1892
  2. 2. I said
    H559
    of laughter,
    H7814
    It is mad:
    H1984
    and of mirth,
    H8057
    What
    H2090
    doeth
    H6213
    it?
  3. 3. I sought
    H8446
    in mine heart
    H3820
    to give
    H4900
    myself
    H1320
    unto wine,
    H3196
    yet acquainting
    H5090
    mine heart
    H3820
    with wisdom;
    H2451
    and to lay hold
    H270
    on folly,
    H5531
    till I might see
    H7200
    what was that good
    H2896
    for the sons
    H1121
    of men,
    H120
    which they should do
    H6213
    under the heaven
    H8064
    all
    H4557
    the days
    H3117
    of their life.
    H2416
  4. 4. I made me great
    H1431
    works;
    H4639
    I builded
    H1129
    me houses;
    H1004
    I planted
    H5193
    me vineyards:
    H3754
  5. 5. I made
    H6213
    me gardens
    H1593
    and orchards,
    H6508
    and I planted
    H5193
    trees
    H6086
    in them of all kind of fruits:
    H6529
  6. 6. I made
    H6213
    me pools
    H1295
    of water,
    H4325
    to water
    H8248
    therewith the wood
    H3293
    that bringeth forth
    H6779
    trees:
    H6086
  7. 7. I got
    H7069
    me servants
    H5650
    and maidens,
    H8198
    and had servants born
    H1121
    in my house;
    H1004
    also I had great
    H7235
    possessions
    H4735
    of great
    H1241
    and small cattle
    H6629
    above all that were in Jerusalem
    H3389
    before
    H6440
    me:
  8. 8. I gathered
    H3664
    me also silver
    H3701
    and gold,
    H2091
    and the peculiar treasure
    H5459
    of kings
    H4428
    and of the provinces:
    H4082
    I gat
    H6213
    me men singers
    H7891
    and women singers,
    H7891
    and the delights
    H8588
    of the sons
    H1121
    of men,
    H120
    as musical instruments,
    H7705
    H7705
    and that of all sorts.
  9. 9. So I was great,
    H1431
    and increased
    H3254
    more than all that were before
    H6440
    me in Jerusalem:
    H3389
    also my wisdom
    H2451
    remained
    H5975
    with me.
  10. 10. And whatsoever mine eyes
    H5869
    desired
    H7592
    I kept
    H680
    not from them, I withheld
    H4513
    not my heart
    H3820
    from any joy;
    H8057
    for my heart
    H3820
    rejoiced
    H8056
    in all my labour:
    H5999
    and this was my portion
    H2506
    of all my labour.
    H5999
  11. 11. Then I looked
    H6437
    on all the works
    H4639
    that my hands
    H3027
    had wrought,
    H6213
    and on the labour
    H5999
    that I had laboured
    H5998
    to do:
    H6213
    and, behold, all was vanity
    H1892
    and vexation
    H7469
    of spirit,
    H7307
    and there was no profit
    H3504
    under the sun.
    H8121
  12. 12. And I turned
    H6437
    myself to behold
    H7200
    wisdom,
    H2451
    and madness,
    H1947
    and folly:
    H5531
    for what can the man
    H120
    do that cometh
    H935
    after
    H310
    the king?
    H4428
    even that which hath been already
    H3528
    done.
    H6213
  13. 13. Then I saw
    H7200
    that
    H3426
    wisdom
    H2451
    excelleth
    H3504
    folly,
    H5531
    as far as light
    H216
    excelleth
    H3504
    darkness.
    H2822
  14. 14. The wise man's
    H2450
    eyes
    H5869
    are in his head;
    H7218
    but the fool
    H3684
    walketh
    H1980
    in darkness:
    H2822
    and I myself perceived
    H3045
    also that one
    H259
    event
    H4745
    happeneth
    H7136
    to them all.
  15. 15. Then
    H227
    said
    H559
    I in my heart,
    H3820
    As it happeneth
    H4745
    to the fool,
    H3684
    so it happeneth
    H7136
    even to me;
    H1571
    and why was I then more
    H3148
    wise?
    H2449
    Then I said
    H1696
    in my heart,
    H3820
    that this also is vanity.
    H1892
  16. 16. For there is no remembrance
    H2146
    of the wise
    H2450
    more than
    H5973
    of the fool
    H3684
    for ever;
    H5769
    seeing that which now
    H3528
    is in the days
    H3117
    to come
    H935
    shall all be forgotten.
    H7911
    And how dieth
    H4191
    the wise
    H2450
    man? as the fool.
    H3684
  17. 17. Therefore I hated
    H8130
    life;
    H2416
    because the work
    H4639
    that is wrought
    H6213
    under the sun
    H8121
    is grievous
    H7451
    unto me: for all is vanity
    H1892
    and vexation
    H7469
    of spirit.
    H7307
  18. 18. Yea, I hated
    H8130
    all my labour
    H5999
    which I had taken
    H6001
    under the sun:
    H8121
    because I should leave
    H3240
    it unto the man
    H120
    that shall be after
    H310
    me.
  19. 19. And who knoweth
    H3045
    whether he shall be a wise
    H2450
    man or a fool?
    H5530
    yet shall he have rule
    H7980
    over all my labour
    H5999
    wherein I have laboured,
    H5998
    and wherein I have shewed myself wise
    H2449
    under the sun.
    H8121
    This is also vanity.
    H1892
  20. 20. Therefore I went about
    H5437
    to cause
    H2976
    my heart
    H3820
    to despair
    H2976
    of all the labour
    H5999
    which I took
    H5998
    under the sun.
    H8121
  21. 21. For there is
    H3426
    a man
    H120
    whose labour
    H5999
    is in wisdom,
    H2451
    and in knowledge,
    H1847
    and in equity;
    H3788
    yet to a man
    H120
    that hath not laboured
    H5998
    therein shall he leave
    H5414
    it for his portion.
    H2506
    This also is vanity
    H1892
    and a great
    H7227
    evil.
    H7451
  22. 22. For what hath
    H1933
    man
    H120
    of all his labour,
    H5999
    and of the vexation
    H7475
    of his heart,
    H3820
    wherein
    H1931
    he hath laboured
    H6001
    under the sun?
    H8121
  23. 23. For all his days
    H3117
    are sorrows,
    H4341
    and his travail
    H6045
    grief;
    H3708
    yea, his heart
    H3820
    taketh not rest
    H7901
    in the night.
    H3915
    This is also vanity.
    H1892
  24. 24. There is nothing better
    H2896
    for a man,
    H120
    than that he should eat
    H398
    and drink,
    H8354
    and that he should make his soul
    H5315
    enjoy
    H7200
    good
    H2896
    in his labour.
    H5999
    This
    H2090
    also I saw,
    H7200
    that it was from the hand
    H3027
    of God.
    H430
  25. 25. For who can eat,
    H398
    or who else can hasten
    H2363
    hereunto, more
    H2351
    than I?
  26. 26. For God giveth
    H5414
    to a man
    H120
    that is good
    H2896
    in his sight
    H6440
    wisdom,
    H2451
    and knowledge,
    H1847
    and joy:
    H8057
    but to the sinner
    H2398
    he giveth
    H5414
    travail,
    H6045
    to gather
    H622
    and to heap up,
    H3664
    that he may give
    H5414
    to him that is good
    H2896
    before
    H6440
    God.
    H430
    This also is vanity
    H1892
    and vexation
    H7469
    of spirit.
