Ecclesiastes 6

The vanity of riches without use.

Ecclesiastes 6:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it [is] common among men: Ecclesiastes 6:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honor, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this [is] vanity, and it [is] an evil disease.

Of children,

Ecclesiastes 6:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} If a man beget a hundred [children], and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also [that] he have no burial; I say, [that] an untimely birth [is] better than he. Ecclesiastes 6:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For he cometh in with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness. Ecclesiastes 6:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Moreover he hath not seen the sun, nor known [any thing]: this hath more rest than the other.

and old age without riches.

Ecclesiastes 6:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Yea, though he live a thousand years twice [told], yet hath he seen no good: do not all go to one place? Ecclesiastes 6:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} All the labor of man [is] for his mouth, and yet the appetite is not filled. Ecclesiastes 6:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For what hath the wise more than the fool? what hath the poor, that knoweth to walk before the living?

The vanity of sight and wandering desires.

Ecclesiastes 6:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Better [is] the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the desire: this [is] also vanity and vexation of spirit. Ecclesiastes 6:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} That which hath been is named already, and it is known that it [is] man: neither may he contend with him that is mightier than he.

The conclusion of vanities.

Ecclesiastes 6:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what [is] man the better? Ecclesiastes 6:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For who knoweth what [is] good for man in [this] life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?
