[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Ecc 1:1 These are the words of the Philosopher, David's son, who was king in Jerusalem.
Ecc 1:2 It is useless, useless, said the Philosopher. Life is useless, all useless.
Ecc 1:3 You spend your life working, laboring, and what do you have to show for it?
Ecc 1:4 Generations come and generations go, but the world stays just the same.
Ecc 1:5 The sun still rises, and it still goes down, going wearily back to where it must start all over again.
Ecc 1:6 The wind blows south, the wind blows north---round and round and back again.
Ecc 1:7 Every river flows into the sea, but the sea is not yet full. The water returns to where the rivers began, and starts all over again.
Ecc 1:8 Everything leads to weariness---a weariness too great for words. Our eyes can never see enough to be satisfied; our ears can never hear enough.
Ecc 1:9 What has happened before will happen again. What has been done before will be done again. There is nothing new in the whole world.
