Cast Your Bread on the Waters1 a Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, for you b will find it ▼
▼ Lit in, withinafter many days. 2 d Divide your portion to seven, or even to eight, for you do not know what e misfortune may occur on the earth. 3 If the clouds are full, they pour out rain upon the earth; and whether a tree falls toward the south or toward the north, wherever the tree falls, there it ▼
▼ Lit islies. 4 He who watches the wind will not sow and he who looks at the clouds will not reap. 5 Just as you do not g know ▼
▼ Or with many mss how the spirit enters the bones in the wombthe path of the wind and i how bones are formed in the womb of the ▼
▼ Lit fullpregnant woman, so you do not k know the activity of God who makes all things. 6 Sow your seed l in the morning and do not ▼
▼ Lit let down your handbe idle in the evening, for you do not know whether ▼
▼ Lit this or thatmorning or evening sowing will succeed, or whether both of them alike will be good. 7 The light is pleasant, and it is good for the eyes to o see the sun. 8 Indeed, if a man should live many years, let him p rejoice in them all, and let him remember the q days of darkness, for they will be many. Everything that is to come will be futility. 9 Rejoice, young man, during your childhood, and let your heart be pleasant during the days of young manhood. And follow the ▼
▼ Lit waysimpulses of your heart and the ▼
▼ Lit sights, t desires of your eyes. Yet know that u God will bring you to judgment for all these things. 10 So, remove grief and anger from your heart and put away ▼
▼ Lit evil, w pain from your body, because childhood and the prime of life are fleeting.
