New International Version
8 All things are wearisome,
more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing,(A)
nor the ear its fill of hearing.
9 What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;(B)
there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there anything of which one can say,
“Look! This is something new”?
It was here already, long ago;
it was here before our time.
11 No one remembers the former generations,(C)
and even those yet to come
will not be remembered
by those who follow them.(D)
