קהלת‏

Keholet (Ecclesiastes)

 Westminster Leningrad Codex Wiki English Translation‎ / World English Bible
1דִּבְרֵי֙ קֹהֶ֣לֶת בֶּן ־ דָּוִ֔ד מֶ֖לֶךְ בִּירוּשָׁלִָֽם ׃Eccl 1:1
¶The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem:
2הֲבֵ֤ל הֲבָלִים֙ אָמַ֣ר קֹהֶ֔לֶת הֲבֵ֥ל הֲבָלִ֖ים הַכֹּ֥ל הָֽבֶל ׃Eccl 1:2
¶“Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher; “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.”
3מַה ־ יִּתְר֖וֹן לָֽאָדָ֑ם בְּכָל ־ עֲמָל֔וֹ שֶֽׁיַּעֲמֹ֖ל תַּ֥חַת הַשָּֽׁמֶשׁ ׃Eccl 1:3
What does man gain from all his labor in which he labors under the sun?
4דּ֤וֹר הֹלֵךְ֙ וְד֣וֹר בָּ֔א וְהָאָ֖רֶץ לְעוֹלָ֥ם עֹמָֽדֶת ׃Eccl 1:4
One generation goes, and another generation comes; but the earth remains forever.
5וְזָרַ֥ח הַשֶּׁ֖מֶשׁ וּבָ֣א הַשָּׁ֑מֶשׁ וְאֶ֨ל ־ מְקוֹמ֔וֹ שׁוֹאֵ֛ף זוֹרֵ֥חַֽ ה֖וּא שָֽׁם ׃Eccl 1:5
The sun also rises, and the sun goes down, and hurries to its place where it rises.
6הוֹלֵךְ֙ אֶל ־ דָּר֔וֹם וְסוֹבֵ֖ב אֶל ־ צָפ֑וֹן סוֹבֵ֤ב ׀ סֹבֵב֙ הוֹלֵ֣ךְ הָר֔וּחַ וְעַל ־ סְבִיבֹתָ֖יו שָׁ֥ב הָרֽוּחַ ׃Eccl 1:6
The wind goes toward the south, and turns around to the north. It turns around continually as it goes, and the wind returns again to its courses.
7כָּל ־ הַנְּחָלִים֙ הֹלְכִ֣ים אֶל ־ הַיָּ֔ם וְהַיָּ֖ם אֵינֶ֣נּוּ מָלֵ֑א אֶל ־ מְק֗וֹם שֶׁ֤הַנְּחָלִים֙ הֹֽלְכִ֔ים שָׁ֛ם הֵ֥ם שָׁבִ֖ים לָלָֽכֶת ׃Eccl 1:7
All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full. To the place where the rivers flow, there they flow again.
8כָּל ־ הַדְּבָרִ֣ים יְגֵעִ֔ים לֹא ־ יוּכַ֥ל אִ֖ישׁ לְדַבֵּ֑ר לֹא ־ תִשְׂבַּ֥ע עַ֙יִן֙ לִרְא֔וֹת וְלֹא ־ תִמָּלֵ֥א אֹ֖זֶן מִשְּׁמֹֽעַ ׃Eccl 1:8
All things are full of weariness beyond uttering. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
9מַה ־ שֶּֽׁהָיָה֙ ה֣וּא שֶׁיִּהְיֶ֔ה וּמַה ־ שֶׁנַּֽעֲשָׂ֔ה ה֖וּא שֶׁיֵּעָשֶׂ֑ה וְאֵ֥ין כָּל ־ חָדָ֖שׁ תַּ֥חַת הַשָּֽׁמֶשׁ ׃Eccl 1:9
That which has been is that which shall be; and that which has been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10יֵ֥שׁ דָּבָ֛ר שֶׁיֹּאמַ֥ר רְאֵה ־ זֶ֖ה חָדָ֣שׁ ה֑וּא כְּבָר֙ הָיָ֣ה לְעֹֽלָמִ֔ים אֲשֶׁ֥ר הָיָ֖ה מִלְּפָנֵֽנוּ ׃Eccl 1:10
Is there a thing of which it may be said, “Behold, this is new?” It has been long ago, in the ages which were before us.
11אֵ֥ין זִכְר֖וֹן לָרִאשֹׁנִ֑ים וְגַ֨ם לָאַחֲרֹנִ֜ים שֶׁיִּהְי֗וּ לֹֽא ־ יִהְיֶ֤ה לָהֶם֙ זִכָּר֔וֹן עִ֥ם שֶׁיִּהְי֖וּ לָאַחֲרֹנָֽה ׃ פ Eccl 1:11
There is no memory of the former; neither shall there be any memory of the latter that are to come, among those that shall come after.
12אֲנִ֣י קֹהֶ֗לֶת הָיִ֥יתִי מֶ֛לֶךְ עַל ־ יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל בִּירוּשָׁלִָֽם ׃Eccl 1:12
¶I, the Preacher, was king over Israel in Jerusalem.
13וְנָתַ֣תִּי אֶת ־ לִבִּ֗י לִדְר֤וֹשׁ וְלָתוּר֙ בַּֽחָכְמָ֔ה עַ֛ל כָּל ־ אֲשֶׁ֥ר נַעֲשָׂ֖ה תַּ֣חַת הַשָּׁמָ֑יִם ה֣וּא ׀ עִנְיַ֣ן רָ֗ע נָתַ֧ן אֱלֹהִ֛ים לִבְנֵ֥י הָאָדָ֖ם לַעֲנ֥וֹת בּֽוֹ ׃Eccl 1:13
I applied my heart to seek and to search out by wisdom concerning all that is done under the sky. It is a heavy burden that God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with.
14רָאִ֙יתִי֙ אֶת ־ כָּל ־ הַֽמַּעֲשִׂ֔ים שֶֽׁנַּעֲשׂ֖וּ תַּ֣חַת הַשָּׁ֑מֶשׁ וְהִנֵּ֥ה הַכֹּ֛ל הֶ֖בֶל וּרְע֥וּת רֽוּחַ ׃Eccl 1:14
I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and behold, all is vanity and a chasing after wind.
15מְעֻוָּ֖ת לֹא ־ יוּכַ֣ל לִתְקֹ֑ן וְחֶסְר֖וֹן לֹא ־ יוּכַ֥ל לְהִמָּנֽוֹת ׃Eccl 1:15
That which is crooked can’t be made straight; and that which is lacking can’t be counted.
16דִּבַּ֨רְתִּי אֲנִ֤י עִם ־ לִבִּי֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר אֲנִ֗י הִנֵּ֨ה הִגְדַּ֤לְתִּי וְהוֹסַ֙פְתִּי֙ חָכְמָ֔ה עַ֛ל כָּל ־ אֲשֶׁר ־ הָיָ֥ה לְפָנַ֖י עַל ־ יְרוּשָׁלִָ֑ם וְלִבִּ֛י רָאָ֥ה הַרְבֵּ֖ה חָכְמָ֥ה וָדָֽעַת ׃Eccl 1:16
I said to myself, “Behold, I have obtained for myself great wisdom above all who were before me in Jerusalem. Yes, my heart has had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.”
17וָאֶתְּנָ֤ה לִבִּי֙ לָדַ֣עַת חָכְמָ֔ה וְדַ֥עַת הוֹלֵל֖וֹת וְשִׂכְל֑וּת יָדַ֕עְתִּי שֶׁגַּם ־ זֶ֥ה ה֖וּא רַעְי֥וֹן רֽוּחַ ׃Eccl 1:17
I applied my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly. I perceived that this also was a chasing after wind.
18כִּ֛י בְּרֹ֥ב חָכְמָ֖ה רָב ־ כָּ֑עַס וְיוֹסִ֥יף דַּ֖עַת יוֹסִ֥יף מַכְאֽוֹב ׃Eccl 1:18
For in much wisdom is much grief; and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.
