He must do this even when he has many troubles 7 Mais il ne sait point ce qui arrivera, et qui lui dira comment cela arrivera? For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be? Because no one can tell him what will happen in the future.
There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it. No person has the power to keep his spirit from leaving. No person has the power to stop his death. During war, a soldier does not have the freedom to go any place he wants to go. All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.
I saw all those things. I thought very hard about the things that happen in this world. And I saw that people always struggle for the power to rule other people. And this is bad for them. And so I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of the holy, and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done: this is also vanity. I also saw great and beautiful funerals for evil people. While the people were going home after the funeral services, they said good things about the evil people that had died.follow
This happened even in the same towns where the evil people had done many, many bad things. That is senseless. Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Sometimes people are not immediately punished for the bad things they do.
Their punishment is slow to come. And that makes other people want to do bad things too.
Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: A sinner might do a hundred evil things. And he might have a long life.
But I know that it is still better to obey and respect God. But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God. There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just men, unto whom it happeneth according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked men, to whom it happeneth according to the work of the righteous: I said that this also is vanity.
There is something else that happens on earth that does not seem fair. Bad things should happen to bad people and good things should happen to good people. But sometimes bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. That is not fair.

Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. So I decided it was more important to enjoy life. Because the best thing people can do in this life is to eat, drink, and enjoy life.
At least that will help people enjoy the hard work God gave them to do during their life on earth. I saw how busy people are. They work day and night, and they almost never sleep.
