1These are the words of the Teacher, King David’s son, who ruled in Jerusalem.

2"Everything is meaningless," says the Teacher, "utterly meaningless!"

3What do people get for all their hard work?

4Generations come and go, but nothing really changes.

5The sun rises and sets and hurries around to rise again.

6The wind blows south and north, here and there, twisting back and forth, getting nowhere.

7The rivers run into the sea, but the sea is never full. Then the water returns again to the rivers and flows again to the sea.

8Everything is so weary and tiresome! No matter how much we see, we are never satisfied. No matter how much we hear, we are not content.

9History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new.

10What can you point to that is new? How do you know it didn’t already exist long ago?

11We don’t remember what happened in those former times. And in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now.

12I, the Teacher, was king of Israel, and I lived in Jerusalem.

13I devoted myself to search for understanding and to explore by wisdom everything being done in the world. I soon discovered that God has dealt a tragic existence to the human race.

14Everything under the sun is meaningless, like chasing the wind.

15What is wrong cannot be righted. What is missing cannot be recovered.

16I said to myself, "Look, I am wiser than any of the kings who ruled in Jerusalem before me. I have greater wisdom and knowledge than any of them."

17So I worked hard to distinguish wisdom from foolishness. But now I realize that even this was like chasing the wind.

18For the greater my wisdom, the greater my grief. To increase knowledge only increases sorrow.
