Ecclesiastes 6:2-4 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

A man to whom God hath given riches, and substance, and honour, and his soul wanteth nothing of all that he desireth: yet God doth not give him power to eat thereof, but a stranger shall eat it up. This is vanity and a great misery.

If a man beget a hundred children, and live many years, and attain to a great age, and his soul make no use of the goods of his substance, and he be without burial: of this man I pronounce, that the untimely born is better than he.

For he came in vain, and goeth to darkness, and his name shall be wholly forgotten.
