13 There is a grievous evil which I have seen under the sun: ariches being 1hoarded by their owner to his hurt.

14 When those riches were lost through 1a bad investment and he had fathered a son, then there was nothing 2to support him.

15 aAs he had come naked from his mother’s womb, so will he return as he came. He will btake nothing from the fruit of his labor that he can carry in his hand.

16 This also is a grievous evil—exactly as a man 1is born, thus will he 2die. So awhat is the advantage to him who btoils for the wind?

17 Throughout his life ahe also eats in darkness with bgreat vexation, sickness and anger.
