[In] its G1473 rising it goes forth G1607 to G4314 south G3558, and G2532 it circles G2944 to G4314 north G1005; circles G2944 circling G2944 going G4198 the G3588 blowing air (ghost) ' G4151, and G2532 at G1909 its circuits G2945 G1473 returns G1994 the G3588 blowing air (ghost) ' G4151.

To G1519 the G3588 place G5117 where G3739 the G3588 rushing streams G5493 went G4198, there G1563 they G1473 will return G1994 the G3588 to go [again G4198.

Who G3739 will speak G2980 and G2532 will say G2046? look [at] G1492 this G3778 is new G2537! Already G2235 it has happened G1096 in G1722 the G3588 ages (terms) ` to the ones G3588 having taken place G1096 from before G1715 us G1473.

12
I G1473 an ecclesiastic became G1096 government leader ' over G1909 Israel in G1722 Jerusalem G2419.
13
And G2532 I gave G1325 the G3588 my heart G2588 G1473 the G3588 to inquire G1567 and G2532 the G3588 to survey by G1722 the G3588 wisdom G4678 concerning G4012 all [things] G3956 the G3588 happening G1096 under G5259 the G3588 raised-place-above (sky) ' G3772.

14
I looked [at] G1492 all the G3588 actions G4161, the ones G3588 being done G4160 under G5259 the G3588 sun G2246; and G2532 look G2400, all G3956 [was] folly G3153 and G2532 a resolve of blowing air (ghost) ' G4151.
15
[The thing] being perverted G1294 is not G3756 able G1410 the G3588 to be embellished . And G2532 deficiency G5303 is not G3756 able G1410 to be counted .
16
I spoke G2980 G1473 in G1722 my heart G2588 G1473 the G3588 to say G3004, look G2400, I G1473 was magnified G3170, and G2532 was added G4369 wisdom G4678 over G1909 all G3956 who G3739 came G1096 before G1715 me G1473 in G1722 Jerusalem G2419. And G2532 I give G1325 my heart G2588 G1473 the G3588 to know G1097 wisdom G4678 and G2532 knowledge G1108.
17
And G2532 my heart G2588 G1473 looked [at] G1492 much G4183 wisdom G4678 and G2532 knowledge G1108, paralells ' G3850, and G2532 higher knowledge . knew G1097 I G1473 For G3754 even G2532 indeed G1065 this G3778 is resolve of blowing air (ghost) ' G4151.
18
For G3754 in G1722 abundance G4128 of wisdom G4678 [is] abundance G4128 of knowledge G1108; and G2532 the one G3588 adding G4369 knowledge G1108 will add G4369 pain .
