Ecclesiastes 2:14-16 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
14 The wise man can see where he is walking,[a] but the fool walks in darkness. Yet I also realized that both of them suffer the same fate. 15 So I said to myself,[b] “If I also suffer the same fate as the fool,[c] what advantage is my great wisdom?”[d] So I said to myself,[e] “This also is vanity!”
16 Certainly no one will remember the wise man or the fool in future generations.[f] When future days come, both will have been forgotten already. How is it that the wise man dies the same as the fool?
