Ecclesiastes 1:2-4 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

The Teacher says,
    “Useless! Useless!
Completely useless!
    All things are useless.”

What do people really gain
    from all the hard work they do here on earth?

Things Never Change

People live, and people die.
    But the earth continues forever.

Ecclesiastes 1:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

“Meaningless! Meaningless!”
    says the Teacher.
“Utterly meaningless!
    Everything is meaningless.”

What do people gain from all their labors
    at which they toil under the sun?
Generations come and generations go,
    but the earth remains forever.
