ECCLESIASTES 1 - ALL IS VANITY.

Ecclesiastes 1

All Is Vanity

1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.

2 Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher,
    vanity of vanities! All is vanity.


3 What does man gain by all the toil
    at which he toils under the sun?


4 A generation goes, and a generation comes,
    but the earth remains forever.


5 The sun rises, and the sun goes down,
    and hastens to the place where it rises.


6 The wind blows to the south
    and goes around to the north;
around and around goes the wind,
    and on its circuits the wind returns.


7 All streams run to the sea,
    but the sea is not full;
to the place where the streams flow,
    there they flow again.


8 All things are full of weariness;
    a man cannot utter it;
the eye is not satisfied with seeing,
    nor the ear filled with hearing.


9 What has been is what will be,
    and what has been done is what will be done,
    and there is nothing new under the sun.


10 Is there a thing of which it is said,
    “See, this is new”?
It has been already
    in the ages before us.


11 There is no remembrance of former things,
    nor will there be any remembrance
of later things yet to be
    among those who come after.

Welcome to my blog:

My French Country Life.

I'm British born, but moved to France decades ago for love.

My blog is about my photography and my life in the French countryside, near Paris.

I create images that are greatly influenced by art, both past and present, that you can buy in the shop.

I'm happy to discuss comissions.
