Ecclesiastes 1:1414I have seen everything that is done under the sun, and behold, all is c vanity ▼
▼The Hebrew term hebel can refer to a “vapor” or “mere breath” (see note on 1:2)and a striving after wind. ▼
▼Or a feeding on wind; compare Hosea 12:1 (also in Ecclesiastes 1:17; 2:11, 17, 26; 4:4, 6, 16; 6:9)
Ecclesiastes 2:2121because sometimes a person who has toiled with wisdom and knowledge and skill must leave everything to be enjoyed by someone who did not toil for it. This also is vanity and a great evil.
Ecclesiastes 2:2626For to the one who pleases him f God has given wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to the sinner he has given g the business of gathering and collecting h only to give to one who pleases God. i This also is vanity and a striving after wind.
Ecclesiastes 4:1616There was no end of all the people, all of whom he led. Yet those who come later will not rejoice in him. Surely this also is j vanity and a striving after wind.
Ecclesiastes 6:99Better k is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the appetite: this also is l vanity and a striving after wind.
Ecclesiastes 6:1111The more words, the more vanity, and what is the advantage to man?
