Ecclesiastes 1:2-4 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
2 Vanity of vanities, says the Teacher,
vanity of vanities! All is vanity.
3 What do people gain from all the toil
at which they toil under the sun?
4 A generation goes, and a generation comes,
but the earth remains for ever.
