International Children’s Bible
14 A wise man sees where he is going.
But a foolish person is like someone walking around in the dark.
Yet I saw that
both the foolish person and the wise man end the same way.
15 I thought to myself,
“What happens to a foolish person will happen to me, too.
So what do I get for being so wise?”
I said to myself,
“Being wise is also useless.”
16 The wise man and the foolish person
will both die!
People will not remember either one forever.
In the future, both will be forgotten.
