Ecclesiastes, Chapter 11

Cast your bread on the waters; for you shall find it after many days.

Give a share to seven, and also to eight; for you know not what evil shall be on the earth.

If the clouds are full of rain, they empty on the earth; and if the tree falls toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falls, there it shall be.

In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening do not withhold your hand; for you do not know what shall be blessed, either this or that, or whether they both [shall be] fruitful in the same way.

Rejoice, in your youth, young man; and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth, and walk in the ways of your heart, and in the sight of your eyes; but know that for all these [things] God will bring you into judgment.

Therefore remove vexation from your heart, and put away evil from your flesh; for childhood and prime of life [are] vanity.
