Ecclesiastes 3:13 New English Translation (NET Bible)

13 and also that everyone should eat and drink, and find enjoyment in all his toil,
for these things[a] are a gift from God.

Footnotes:

  1. Ecclesiastes 3:13 tn Heb “for it.” The referent of the third person feminine singular independent person pronoun (“it”) is probably the preceding statement: “to eat, drink, and find satisfaction.” This would be an example of an anacoluthon (GKC 505-6 §167.b). Thus the present translation uses “these things” to indicate the reference back to the preceding.
