Ecclesiastes

CHAPTER 11

Bread on the waters
11:1-10

1 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.

Throw your bread on the waters. It'll come back after many days. [1]

2 Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.

Give some to 7 or 8. Who knows what evil there will be on earth?

3 If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.

In the place where the tree falls, there it shall be.

4 He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.

Those who see wind, won't sow.

Those who see clouds, won't reap.

5 As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.

6 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.

7 Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun:

8 But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.

You don't know how the fetus develops in the womb [2],

so you don't know the works of God.

9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.

10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.

Enjoy your youth and follow your heart [3]

and look where you're going.
