Ecclesiastes

Ecclesiastes 6

    The Frustration of Desires

  1. "There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it lies heavy upon men: "
  2. "a man to whom God gives wealth, possessions, and honor, so that he lacks nothing of all that he desires, yet God does not give him power to enjoy them, but a stranger enjoys them; this is vanity; it is a sore affliction. "
  3. "If a man begets a hundred children, and lives many years, so that the days of his years are many, but he does not enjoy life's good things, and also has no burial, I say that an untimely birth is better off than he. "
