Ecclesiastes or, The Preacher

Chapter 11

1

 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. 

2

 Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth. 

3

 If the clouds be full of rain, they empty [themselves] upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be. 

4

 He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap. 

5

 As thou knowest not what [is] the way of the spirit, [nor] how the bones [do grow] in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all. 

6

 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both [shall be] alike good. 

7

 Truly the light [is] sweet, and a pleasant [thing it is] for the eyes to behold the sun: 

8

 But if a man live many years, [and] rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh [is] vanity. 

9

 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these [things] God will bring thee into judgment. 

10

 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth [are] vanity. 

Ecclesiastes 12
