Ecclesiastes 4:3-8

A (3) Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil <07451> work that is done

B (3) under the sun.

C (4) Again, I considered<07200>

D (4) all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.

E (5) The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.

D1 (6) Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.

C1 (7) Then I returned, and I saw <07200> vanity

B1 (7) under the sun.

A1 (8) There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore <07451> travail.
