Bible Passage

2:16 For the wise man, like the fool, will not be remembered for very long,

because in the days to come, both will already have been forgotten.

Alas, the wise man diesjust like the fool!

17 So I loathed life because what

happens on earth seems awful to me;

for all the benefits of wisdom are futile—like chasing the wind.
