Ecclesiastes 2:15-17 Expanded Bible (EXB)

15 I ·thought to myself [L said in my heart],
“·What happens to a fool will happen to me [L The fate of the fool is my fate], too,
    so ·what is the reward for being [L why have I become so] wise?”
I said to myself,
    “·Being wise [L This] is also useless [1:2].”
16 No one will remember the wise or the fool for long.
    ·In the future, [L The days will come only too soon when] both will be forgotten.
    How will the wise person die?
    Like the fool?

Is There Real Happiness in Life?

17 So I hated life. ·It made me sad to think that everything [L For evil is the work that is done] ·here on earth [L under the sun; 1:3] is useless [1:2], like chasing the wind.
