Ecclesiastes 111 Cast thy bread upon the face of the waters; for after many days wilt thou find it again. 2 Give a portion to seven, and also to eight: for thou knowest not what evil may come upon the earth.— 3 If the clouds be full of rain, they will empty it out upon the earth; and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, on the place where the tree falleth, there will it remain. 4 He that watcheth the wind will not sow; and he that gazeth on the clouds will not reap. 5 As thou knowest not which is the way of the wind, as little as what is enclosed in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou canst not know the works of God who maketh all. 6 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening let not thy hand rest; for thou knowest not which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both of them will be alike good. 7 Truly the light is sweet, and it is a pleasant thing for the eyes to see the sun; 8 For if a man live even many years, let him rejoice in them all; and let him remember the days of darkness; for they will be many; all that cometh is vanity. 9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy childhood; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youthful vigor, and walk firmly in the ways of thy heart, and in the direction which thy eyes see: but know thou, that concerning all these things God will bring thee into judgment. 10 And remove vexation from thy heart, and cause evil to pass away from thy body; for childhood and the time when the head is black are vanity.
