Ecclesiastes 2:14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

14 Wise people have eyes in their heads,
    but fools walk in darkness.

Yet I knew that the same lot befalls both.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 2:14 Yet I knew…befalls both: the author quotes a traditional saying upholding the advantages of wisdom, but then qualifies it. Nothing, not even wisdom itself, can give someone absolute control over their destiny and therefore guarantee any advantage.

Ecclesiastes 3:15 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

15 [a]What now is has already been; what is to be, already is: God retrieves what has gone by.

Footnotes:

  1. 3:15 The verse is difficult. Literally it reads “and God seeks out what was pursued.” It appears to be a variation of the theme in 1:9, “There is nothing new under the sun.”
