Ecclesiastes 9:8-10 Common English Bible (CEB)

Let your garments always be white; don’t run short of oil for your head. Enjoy life with your dearly loved spouse all the days of your pointless life that God[a] gives you under the sun—all the days of your pointless life![b]—because that’s your part to play[c] in this life and in your hard work under the sun. 10 Whatever you are capable of doing, do with all your might because there’s no work, thought, knowledge, or wisdom in the grave,[d] which is where you are headed.
