But if a man lives many years
And (A)rejoices in them all,
Yet let him (B)remember the days of darkness,
For they will be many.
All that is coming is vanity.

Seek God in Early Life

Rejoice, O young man, in your youth,
And let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth;
(C)Walk in the [a]ways of your heart,
And [b]in the sight of your eyes;
But know that for all these
(D)God will bring you into judgment.
10 Therefore remove [c]sorrow from your heart,
And (E)put away evil from your flesh,
(F)For childhood and [d]youth are vanity.
