Ecclesiastes 1:2-4 Common English Bible (CEB)

Perfectly pointless,[a] says the Teacher, perfectly pointless.
    Everything is pointless.

Some things are inevitable

What do people gain from all the hard work
    that they work so hard at under the sun?
A generation goes, and a generation comes,
    but the earth remains as it always has.
