Ecclesiastes 2:23-25 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

23 For all his days are filled with grief, and his occupation is sorrowful; even at night, his mind does not rest. This too is futile.

24 There is nothing better for man than to eat, drink, and enjoy[a][b] his work. I have seen that even this is from God’s hand, 25 because who can eat and who can enjoy life[c] apart from Him?[d]
