Ecclesiastes 6:11
Seeing there are many things that increase vanity, how is man the better?
Seeing there are many things that increase vanity, what is man the better?
For there are many other words that increase futility. What then is the advantage for a man?
Seeing that there are [all these and] many other things and words that increase the emptiness, falsity, vainglory, and futility [of living], what profit and what outcome is there for man?
¶ Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better?
Because the more words increase, the more everything is pointless. What do people gain by it?
There are many things that only add to futility, so how do humans benefit from them?
The more we talk, the less sense we make, so what good does it do to talk?
For there are many things that increase vanity: what is man advantaged?
There are many words that have much vanity in disputing.
You are only what you were created to be—a human, and it is useless to argue about it. People cannot argue with God about this because he is more powerful than they are, and a long argument will not change that fact.
The more words, the more vanity, and what is the advantage to man?
The more words, the more vanity, and what is the advantage to man?
·The more you say, the more useless it is [There are many words that increase meaninglessness; 1:2]. What good does it do?
The more words there are, the more pointless they become. What advantage do mortals gain from this?
The longer you argue, the more useless it is, and you are no better off.
For when there are many words, they increase futility. What is the advantage for man?
The more you argue, the more useless it is. You gain nothing at all by arguing.
Because many words lead to pointlessness, how do people benefit from this?
¶ Certainly the many words multiply vanity, what more does man have?
Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better?
Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better?
Increasing words only multiplies futility, how does that profit anyone?
The more words you speak, the less they mean, so why bother to speak at all?
The more words that are spoken, the more smoke there is in the air. And who is any better off? And who knows what’s best for us as we live out our meager smoke-and-shadow lives? And who can tell any of us the next chapter of our lives?
The more words, the more vanity, so what profit is there to mankind?
The more words there are, the more pointless they become. What advantage do mortals gain from this?
For the more words, the more vanity; what profit is there for anyone?
For there are many words which increase futility. What then is the advantage to a man?
The more you say, the more useless it is. What good does it do?
The more one argues with words, the less he accomplishes. How does that benefit him?
The more words people use, the less meaning there is. And that doesn’t help anyone.
The more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that profit anyone?
The more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that profit anyone?
Since there are many things that increase vanity, How is man the better?
The more words there are, the more they are worth nothing. What good is that to anyone?
The more words you speak, the less they mean. So what good are they?
The more words, the more vanity, so how is one the better?
The more words, the more vanity, so how is one the better?
The more words, the more vanity, so how is one the better?
The more words, the more vanity, so how is one the better?
Seeing there be many things that increase hevel, what profit is there for adam?
The more words, the more vanity, and what is man the better?
The more words, the more vanity, and what is man the better?
When there are many words, futility increases! How does that benefit anyone?
The more a person speaks, the more breath is fleeting; and what advantage do a lot of words bring us?
For there are many words that create vanity. What does that profit man?
Words be full many, and have much vanity in disputing. What need is it to a man to seek greater things than himself; (There can be a great many words, but there is much that is empty and futile in disputing, or in arguing. What profiteth it to someone,)
For there are many things multiplying vanity; what advantage [is] to man?
