Ecclesiastes 12:6-8 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Remember your Creator before the silver cord is snapped,
    the golden bowl is broken,
        the pitcher is smashed near the spring,
            and the water wheel is broken at the cistern.
Then the dust of mortals goes back to the ground as it was before,
    and the breath of life goes back to Elohim who gave it.

“Absolutely pointless!” says the spokesman. “Everything is pointless!”

Ecclesiastes 12:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

Remember him—before the silver cord is severed,
    and the golden bowl is broken;
before the pitcher is shattered at the spring,
    and the wheel broken at the well,
and the dust returns to the ground it came from,
    and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher.[a]
    “Everything is meaningless!
