Ecclesiastes 6:2-4 New English Translation (NET Bible)

God gives a man riches, property, and wealth

yet God does not enable him to enjoy the fruit of his labor—
instead, someone else enjoys it!
This is fruitless and a grave misfortune.
Even if a man fathers a hundred children and lives many years—
even if he lives a long, long time, but cannot enjoy his prosperity—
even if he were to live forever—
I would say, “A stillborn child is better off than he is!”
Though the stillborn child came into the world for no reason and departed into darkness,
though its name is shrouded in darkness,
