Ecclesiastes Chapter 2 - Early Church Bible

1
I said G2036 G1473 in G1722 my heart G2588 G1473, Come now G1204 indeed G1211, I will test G3985 you G1473 with G1722 gladness G2167, and [therefore G2532 know G1492 G1722 good ! And G2532 look G2400, also G2532 even G1065 this G3778 [is] folly G3153.
2
To the G3588 laughter G1071, I said G2036, Deviation . and G2532 to the G3588 gladness G2167, Why G5100 do you do this G3778 G4160?
3
And G2532 I surveyed if G1487 the G3588 my heart G2588 G1473 would draw G1670 [with G5613 wine G3631 the G3588 my flesh G4561 G1473; and G2532 my heart G2588 G1473 guided G3594 me G1473 in G1722 wisdom G4678; and G2532 the G3588 to hold G2902 upon G1909 gladness G2167 until G2193 G3739 I should see G1492 what kind [was G4169 the G3588 good to the G3588 sons G5207 of the G3588 men , which G3739 they will do G4160 under G5259 the G3588 sun G2246 numbered days G2250 of life G2222 [with] their G1473.
4
I magnified G3170 my action G4161 G1473; I built G3618 to myself G1473 houses G3624; I planted G5452 my G1473 vineyards .
5
I made G4160 to myself G1473 gardens G2779 and G2532 parks G3857; and G2532 I planted G5452 in G1722 them G1473 a tree G3586 for every G3956 fruit G2590.
6
I made G4160 to myself G1473 pools G2861 of waters G5204 the G3588 to water G4222 by G1909 them G1473 grove bursting forth rees G3586.
7
I acquired G2932 manservants G1401, and G2532 maidservants G3814; and G2532 native-born servants were born G1096 to me G1473; and G2532 indeed G1065 a possession herd and G2532 flock G4168 of a great G4183 became G1096 to me G1473 above G5228 all G3956 the ones G3588 being G1096 before G1715 me G1473 in G1722 Jerusalem G2419.
8
I brought together G4863 to myself G1473 also G2532 indeed G1065 silver , and G2532 indeed G1065 gold G5553, and G2532 prized possessions of government leaders ' and G2532 of the G3588 places G5561. I prepared G4160 to myself G1473 [male] singers and G2532 [female] singers , and G2532 amusements of sons G5207 of the G3588 man ; [and] male wine servers and G2532 female wine servers .
9
And G2532 I became magnified G3170, and G2532 proceeded G4369 in wisdom G4678 past G3844 all G3956 the ones G3588 being G1096 before G1715 me G1473 in G1722 Jerusalem G2419; and G2532 indeed G1065 my wisdom G4678 G1473 was established G2476 to me G1473.
10
And G2532 all G3956 whatever G3739 asked for the G3588 my eyes G3788 G1473 was not G3756 at a distance from them G1473. I did not G3756 detain the G3588 my heart G2588 G1473 from any G3956 gladness G2167, for G3754 my heart G2588 G1473 was gladdened G2165 in G1722 all G3956 my effort G3449 G1473. And G2532 this G3778 was G1096 my portion G3310 G1473 off all G3956 my effort G3449 G1473.
11
And G2532 I looked G1914 G1473 upon G1722 all G3956 my actions G4161 G1473, the things which G3739 I did G4160 the G3588 by my hands G5495 G1473, and G2532 on G1722 effort G3449 in which G3739 I made an effort the G3588 to do G4160. And G2532 look G2400, the G3588 all [things] G3956 [were] folly G3153 and G2532 a resolve of blowing air (ghost) ' G4151, and G2532 there is no G3756 advantage G4050 under G5259 the G3588 sun G2246.
12
And G2532 I looked around G1914 G1473 the G3588 to look [at] G1492 wisdom G4678 and G2532 deviation and G2532 folly ; for G3754 who G5100 [is the] man who G3739 will come G1904 after G3694 the G3588 counsel G1012, with G4862 the G3588 as much as G3745 they did G4160 it G1473?
13
And G2532 I looked [at] G1492 G1473 that G3754 there is an advantage G4050 [to] the G3588 wisdom G4678 over G5228 the G3588 folly ; as G5613 advantage G4050 of the G3588 light G5457 over G5228 the G3588 darkness G4655.
14
The G3588 wise man G4680 the G3588 eyes G3788 of him G1473 [are] in G1722 his head G2776 G1473; but G2532 the G3588 fool in G1722 darkness G4655 goes G4198. And G2532 I knew G1097, even G2532 indeed G1065 I G1473, that G3754 event one G1520 will meet with G4876 the G3588 all G3956 them G1473.
15
And G2532 I said G2036 G1473 in G1722 my heart G2588 G1473, As G5613 event of the G3588 fool [is , even G2532 indeed G1065 to me G1473 it will meet up with G4876 me G1473; and G2532 why G2444 have I discerned wisdom G4679 G1473? [And this] extra the G3588 G4053 I said G2980 in G1722 my heart G2588 G1473, because G1360 fool from out of G1537 abundance G4051 speaks G2980, for G3754 even G2532 indeed G1065 this G3778 [is] folly G3153.
16
For G3754 there is no G3756 remembrance G3420 of the G3588 wise man G4680 with G3326 the G3588 fool in G1519 the G3588 age (term) `; in so far as G2530 already G2235 the G3588 days G2250 the G3588 coming G2064 the G3588 all [things] G3956 are forgotten G1950; and G2532 how G4459 will die the G3588 wise [man G4680 with G3326 the G3588 fool ?
17
And G2532 I was detested G3404 with G4862 the G3588 life G2222; for G3754 evil G4190 [was] upon G1909 me G1473 -- the G3588 action G4161 of the G3588 doing [a thing G4160 under G5259 the G3588 sun G2246. For G3754 all G3956 [is] folly G3153 and G2532 a resolve of blowing air (ghost) ' G4151.
18
And G2532 I detested G3404 G1473 all my effort G3449 G1473 which G3739 I G1473 made an effort under G5259 the G3588 sun G2246. For G3754 I must leave it G1473 to the G3588 man the G3588 coming G1096 after G3326 me G1473.
19
And G2532 who G5100 knows G1492 if G1487 he will be a wise man G4680 or G2228 a fool ? And G2532 if G1487 he exercises authority G1850 in G1722 all G3956 my effort G3449 G1473 in which G3739 I made an effort in , and G2532 in which G3739 I gained discernment G4679 under G5259 the G3588 sun G2246. Even G2532 indeed G1065 this G3778 [is] folly G3153.
20
And G2532 I turned G1994 G1473 the G3588 to dismiss the G3588 my heart G2588 G1473 upon G1909 all G3956 effort G3449 in which G3739 I made an effort under G5259 the G3588 sun G2246.
21
For G3754 there is a man that G3754 [made] his effort G3449 G1473 in G1722 wisdom G4678, and G2532 in G1722 knowledge G1108, and G2532 in G1722 courage ; and G2532 a man in whom G3739 did not G3756 make an effort -- in G1722 him G1473 he will give G1325 to him G1473 his portion G3310 G1473. And G2532 indeed G1065 this [is G3778 folly G3153 and G2532 wickedness G4189 great
22
[What] happens G1096 to the G3588 man in G1722 all G3956 his effort G3449 G1473, and G2532 in G1722 resolve of his heart G2588 G1473 in which G3739 he G1473 makes an effort under G5259 the G3588 sun G2246?
23
For G3754 in all G3956 the G3588 his days G2250 G1473 [are] pains and G2532 rage G2372 of his distraction G1473; and indeed G2532 G1065 in G1722 night G3571 does not G3756 go to bed G2837 the G3588 heart G2588 of him ' G1473. And G2532 indeed G1065 this G3778 is folly G3153.
24
There not G3756 is a good [thing] to man unless G1508 G3739 to eat G2068 and G2532 G3739 to drink G4095, and G2532 G3739 to show G1166 the G3588 his soul G5590 G1473 good in G1722 his effort G3449 G1473. And G2532 indeed G1065 this G3778 I knew G1492 G1473, that G3754 from hand G5495 of the G3588 God ' G2316 it is .
25
For G3754 who G5100 will eat G2068, and G2532 who G5100 will drink G4095 besides him G1473?
26
For G3754 to the G3588 man , to the one G3588 good before G4253 his face G4383 G1473, he gave G1325 wisdom G4678, and G2532 knowledge G1108, and G2532 gladness G2167. And G2532 to the one G3588 sinning , he gave G1325 distraction the G3588 to be added G4369 and G2532 the G3588 to bring together G4863; [so as the G3588 to give G1325 to the G3588 good [man before G4253 face G4383 of the G3588 God ' G2316. For G3754 even G2532 indeed G1065 this G3778 [is] folly G3153 and G2532 resolve of blowing air (ghost) ' G4151.
