Ecclesiastes 2:15-17 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

15 Then I said to myself,

“What happens to a foolish person will catch up with me too.
    So what do I gain by being wise?”
I said to myself,
    “That doesn’t have any meaning either.”
16 Like a foolish person, a wise person won’t be remembered very long.
    The days have already come when both of them have been forgotten.
Like a person who is foolish,
    a wise person must die too!

Work Is Meaningless

17 So I hated life. That’s because the work done on this earth made me sad. None of it has any meaning. It’s like chasing the wind.
