ECC 1:3 What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
ECC 2:10 And whatsoever mine eyes desired I kept not from them, I withheld not
my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced in all my labour: and this was my
portion of all my labour.
ECC 2:11 Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the
labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of
spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.
ECC 2:17 Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun
is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
ECC 2:18 Yea, I hated all my labour which I had taken under the sun: because I

ECC 2:20 Therefore I went about to cause my heart to despair of all the labour
which I took under the sun.

equity; yet to a man that hath not laboured therein shall he leave it for his
portion. This also is vanity and a great evil.
ECC 2:22 For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart,
wherein he hath laboured under the sun?

work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
1TH 4:12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye
may have lack of nothing.
2TH 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any
would not work, neither should he eat.
2TH 3:11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly,
