Ecclesiastes 2:14-16 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

14 The wise man has eyes in his head,
but the fool walks in darkness.
Yet the same fate awaits them all.

15 So I said to myself, “If the same thing happens to the fool as to me, then what did I gain by being wise?” and I thought to myself, “This too is pointless. 16 For the wise man, like the fool, will not be long remembered, inasmuch as in the times to come, everything will long ago have been forgotten. The wise man, no less than the fool, must die.”
