Ecclesiastes 1:12-18 [ Verse 17 in Original: Hebrew / Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
12 I, the Preacher, R10 have been king over Israel in Jerusalem. 13 And I set R11 my mind F10 to seek and explore R12 by wisdom concerning all that has been done under heaven. It is a F11 grievous task R13 which God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with. 14 I have seen all the works which have been done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity R14 F12 and striving after wind. 15 What is crooked R15 cannot be straightened and what is lacking cannot be counted. 16 I said F13 to myself, "Behold, I have magnified and increased wisdom R16 more than all who were over Jerusalem before me; and my mind F14 has observed a F15 wealth of wisdom and knowledge." 17 And I set R17 my mind F16 to know wisdom and to know R18 madness and folly; I realized that this also is striving R19 after wind. 18 Because in R20 much wisdom there is much grief, and increasing knowledge results in increasing pain.
