Chapter 6

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)


      There is yet another plague under the Sun, and it is a general thing among men: When God giveth a man riches, goods and honor, so that he wanteth nothing of all that his heart can desire: and yet God giveth him not leave to enjoy the same, but another man spendeth them. This is a vain thing and a miserable plague. If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that his days are many in number, and yet can not enjoy his good, neither be buried: as for him I say, that an untimely birth is better than he. For he cometh to naught, and goeth his way into darkness, and his name is forgotten. Moreover, he seeth not the *Son, and knoweth no rest neither here ner there: Yee, though he live *two thousand years, yet he hath no good life. Come not all to one place? All the labor that man hath taken, is for himself, and yet his desire is never filled after his mind. For what hath the wise more than the fool? What helpeth it the poor, that he knoweth to walk before the living? The sight of the eyes is better, then that the fool should depart away. Howbeit this is also a vain thing and a disquietness of the mind. What is more excellent than man? Yet can he not in the law get victory of him that is mightier than he: A vain thing is it to cast out many words, but what hath a man else?

*Again no missprint Son and also * note this : two thousand years ...Mark :1000 years = 1 day and a day = 1000 years with the Lord. 2Peter 3 . RN
