Ecclesiastes 1:2-7 Living Bible (TLB)

In my opinion, nothing is worthwhile; everything is futile. 3-7 For what does a man get for all his hard work?

Generations come and go, but it makes no difference.[a] The sun rises and sets and hurries around to rise again. The wind blows south and north, here and there, twisting back and forth, getting nowhere.* The rivers run into the sea, but the sea is never full, and the water returns again to the rivers and flows again to the sea . . .
