Ecclesiastes 2:1-2 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

The Emptiness of Pleasure

I said to myself, “Go ahead, I will test you with pleasure; enjoy what is good.” But it turned out to be futile. I said about laughter, “It is madness,” and about pleasure, “What does this accomplish?”

Luke 6:25 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

25 Woe to you who are now full,
for you will be hungry.
Woe to you[a] who are now laughing,
for you will mourn and weep.
