Ecclesiastes 2:23-25 Common English Bible (CEB)

23 All their days are pain, and their work is aggravation; even at night, their hearts don’t find rest. This too is pointless.

24 There’s nothing better for human beings than to eat, drink, and experience pleasure in their hard work. I also saw that this is from God’s hand— 25 Who can eat and find enjoyment otherwise?—

Ecclesiastes 2:23-25 New International Version (NIV)

23 All their days their work is grief and pain; even at night their minds do not rest. This too is meaningless.

24 A person can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in their own toil. This too, I see, is from the hand of God, 25 for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment?
