Keholet (Ecclesiastes)

 Westminster Leningrad Codex Wiki English Translation‎ / World English Bible
1וּזְכֹר֙ אֶת ־ בּ֣וֹרְאֶ֔יךָ בִּימֵ֖י בְּחוּרֹתֶ֑יךָ עַ֣ד אֲשֶׁ֤ר לֹא ־ יָבֹ֙אוּ֙ יְמֵ֣י הָֽרָעָ֔ה וְהִגִּ֣יעוּ שָׁנִ֔ים אֲשֶׁ֣ר תֹּאמַ֔ר אֵֽין ־ לִ֥י בָהֶ֖ם חֵֽפֶץ ׃Eccl 12:1
Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth,
before the evil days come, and the years draw near,
when you will say, “I have no pleasure in them;”
2עַ֠ד אֲשֶׁ֨ר לֹֽא ־ תֶחְשַׁ֤ךְ הַשֶּׁ֙מֶשׁ֙ וְהָא֔וֹר וְהַיָּרֵ֖חַ וְהַכּוֹכָבִ֑ים וְשָׁ֥בוּ הֶעָבִ֖ים אַחַ֥ר הַגָּֽשֶׁם ׃Eccl 12:2
Before the sun, the light, the moon, and the stars are darkened,
and the clouds return after the rain;
3בַּיּ֗וֹם שֶׁיָּזֻ֙עוּ֙ שֹׁמְרֵ֣י הַבַּ֔יִת וְהִֽתְעַוְּת֖וּ אַנְשֵׁ֣י הֶחָ֑יִל וּבָטְל֤וּ הַטֹּֽחֲנוֹת֙ כִּ֣י מִעֵ֔טוּ וְחָשְׁכ֥וּ הָרֹא֖וֹת בָּאֲרֻבּֽוֹת ׃Eccl 12:3
in the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble,
and the strong men shall bow themselves,
and the grinders cease because they are few,
and those who look out of the windows are darkened,
4וְסֻגְּר֤וּ דְלָתַ֙יִם֙ בַּשּׁ֔וּק בִּשְׁפַ֖ל ק֣וֹל הַֽטַּחֲנָ֑ה וְיָקוּם֙ לְק֣וֹל הַצִּפּ֔וֹר וְיִשַּׁ֖חוּ כָּל ־ בְּנ֥וֹת הַשִּֽׁיר ׃Eccl 12:4
and the doors shall be shut in the street;
when the sound of the grinding is low,
and one shall rise up at the voice of a bird,
and all the daughters of music shall be brought low;
5גַּ֣ם מִגָּבֹ֤הַּ יִרָ֙אוּ֙ וְחַתְחַתִּ֣ים בַּדֶּ֔רֶךְ וְיָנֵ֤אץ הַשָּׁקֵד֙ וְיִסְתַּבֵּ֣ל הֶֽחָגָ֔ב וְתָפֵ֖ר הָֽאֲבִיּוֹנָ֑ה כִּֽי ־ הֹלֵ֤ךְ הָאָדָם֙ אֶל ־ בֵּ֣ית עוֹלָמ֔וֹ וְסָבְב֥וּ בַשּׁ֖וּק הַסֹּפְדִֽים ׃Eccl 12:5
yes, they shall be afraid of heights,
and terrors will be in the way;
and the almond tree shall blossom,
and the grasshopper shall be a burden,
and desire shall fail;
because man goes to his everlasting home,
and the mourners go about the streets:
6עַ֣ד אֲשֶׁ֤ר לֹֽא ־ ‏{ ירחק יֵרָתֵק֙ }‏ חֶ֣בֶל הַכֶּ֔סֶף וְתָרֻ֖ץ גֻּלַּ֣ת הַזָּהָ֑ב וְתִשָּׁ֤בֶר כַּד֙ עַל ־ הַמַּבּ֔וּעַ וְנָרֹ֥ץ הַגַּלְגַּ֖ל אֶל ־ הַבּֽוֹר ׃Eccl 12:6
before the silver cord is severed,
or the golden bowl is broken,
or the pitcher is broken at the spring,
or the wheel broken at the cistern,
7וְיָשֹׁ֧ב הֶעָפָ֛ר עַל ־ הָאָ֖רֶץ כְּשֶׁהָיָ֑ה וְהָר֣וּחַ תָּשׁ֔וּב אֶל ־ הָאֱלֹהִ֖ים אֲשֶׁ֥ר נְתָנָֽהּ ׃Eccl 12:7
and the dust returns to the earth as it was,
and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
8הֲבֵ֧ל הֲבָלִ֛ים אָמַ֥ר הַקּוֹהֶ֖לֶת הַכֹּ֥ל הָֽבֶל ׃Eccl 12:8
“Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher.
“All is vanity!”
9וְיֹתֵ֕ר שֶׁהָיָ֥ה קֹהֶ֖לֶת חָכָ֑ם ע֗וֹד לִמַּד ־ דַּ֙עַת֙ אֶת ־ הָעָ֔ם וְאִזֵּ֣ן וְחִקֵּ֔ר תִּקֵּ֖ן מְשָׁלִ֥ים הַרְבֵּֽה ׃Eccl 12:9
¶Further, because the Preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge. Yes, he pondered, sought out, and set in order many proverbs.
10בִּקֵּ֣שׁ קֹהֶ֔לֶת לִמְצֹ֖א דִּבְרֵי ־ חֵ֑פֶץ וְכָת֥וּב יֹ֖שֶׁר דִּבְרֵ֥י אֱמֶֽת ׃Eccl 12:10
The Preacher sought to find out acceptable words, and that which was written blamelessly, words of truth.
11דִּבְרֵ֤י חֲכָמִים֙ כַּדָּ֣רְבֹנ֔וֹת וּֽכְמַשְׂמְר֥וֹת נְטוּעִ֖ים בַּעֲלֵ֣י אֲסֻפּ֑וֹת נִתְּנ֖וּ מֵרֹעֶ֥ה אֶחָֽד ׃Eccl 12:11
The words of the wise are like goads; and like nails well fastened are words from the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.
12וְיֹתֵ֥ר מֵהֵ֖מָּה בְּנִ֣י הִזָּהֵ֑ר עֲשׂ֨וֹת סְפָרִ֤ים הַרְבֵּה֙ אֵ֣ין קֵ֔ץ וְלַ֥הַג הַרְבֵּ֖ה יְגִעַ֥ת בָּשָֽׂר ׃Eccl 12:12
Furthermore, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
13ס֥וֹף דָּבָ֖ר הַכֹּ֣ל נִשְׁמָ֑ע אֶת ־ הָאֱלֹהִ֤ים יְרָא֙ וְאֶת ־ מִצְוֹתָ֣יו שְׁמ֔וֹר כִּי ־ זֶ֖ה כָּל ־ הָאָדָֽם ׃Eccl 12:13
¶This is the end of the matter. All has been heard. Fear God, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man.
14כִּ֤י אֶת ־ כָּל ־ מַֽעֲשֶׂ֔ה הָאֱלֹהִ֛ים יָבִ֥א בְמִשְׁפָּ֖ט עַ֣ל כָּל ־ נֶעְלָ֑ם אִם ־ ט֖וֹב וְאִם ־ רָֽע ׃ Eccl 12:14
For God will bring every work into judgment, with every hidden thing, whether it is good, or whether it is evil.
« Ch 11
