Ecclesiastes 2:17

English Standard Version

17 So I hated life, because what is done under the sun was grievous to me, for all is vanity and a striving after wind. (Ec 2:11)

New International Version

17 So I hated life, because the work that is done under the sun was grievous to me. All of it is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

New Int. Readers Version

17 So I hated life. That's because the work that is done on this earth made me sad. None of it has any meaning. It's like chasing the wind.

King James Version

17 Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
