Ecclesiastes 11 - Versions
Ecclesiastes 11 Text (WEB)
  1. Cast your bread on the waters; for you shall find it after many days.
  2. Give a portion to seven, yes, even to eight; for you don't know what evil will be on the earth.
  3. If the clouds are full of rain, they empty themselves on the earth; and if a tree falls toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falls, there shall it be.
  4. He who observes the wind won't sow; and he who regards the clouds won't reap.
  5. As you don't know what is the way of the wind, nor how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child; even so you don't know the work of God who does all.
  6. In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening don't withhold your hand; for you don't know which will prosper, whether this or that, or whether they both will be equally good.
  7. Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to see the sun.
  8. Yes, if a man lives many years, let him rejoice in them all; but let him remember the days of darkness, for they shall be many. All that comes is vanity.
  9. Rejoice, young man, in your youth, 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.
  10. Therefore remove sorrow from your heart, and put away evil from your flesh; for youth and the dawn of life are vanity.
Ecclesiastes 11 Text (Hebrew)
  1. שלח לחמך על־פני המים כי־ברב הימים תמצאנו׃
  2. תן־חלק לשבעה וגם לשמונה כי לא תדע מה־יהיה רעה על־הארץ׃
  3. אם־ימלאו העבים גשם על־הארץ יריקו ואם־יפול עץ בדרום ואם בצפון מקום שיפול העץ שם יהוא׃
  4. שמר רוח לא יזרע וראה בעבים לא יקצור׃
  5. כאשר אינך יודע מה־דרך הרוח כעצמים בבטן המלאה ככה לא תדע את־מעשה האלהים אשר יעשה את־הכל׃
  6. בבקר זרע את־זרעך ולערב אל־תנח ידך כי אינך יודע אי זה יכשר הזה או־זה ואם־שניהם כאחד טובים׃
  7. ומתוק האור וטוב לעינים לראות את־השמש׃
  8. כי אם־שנים הרבה יחיה האדם בכלם ישמח ויזכר את־ימי החשך כי־הרבה יהיו כל־שבא הבל׃
  9. שמח בחור בילדותיך ויטיבך לבך בימי בחורותך והלך בדרכי לבך ובמראי עיניך ודע כי על־כל־אלה יביאך האלהים במשפט׃
  10. והסר כעס מלבך והעבר רעה מבשרך כי־הילדות והשחרות הבל׃
Ecclesiastes 11 Text (Greek)
  1. αποστειλον τον αρτον σου επι προσωπον του υδατος οτι εν πληθει των ημερων ευρησεις
  2. δος μεριδα τοις επτα και γε τοις οκτω οτι ου γινωσκεις τι εσται πονηρον επι την
  3. εαν πληρωθωσιν τα νεφη υετου επι την γην εκχεουσιν και εαν πεση ξυλον εν τω νοτω και εαν εν τω βορρα τοπω ου πεσειται το ξυλον εκει
  4. τηρων ανεμον ου σπερει και βλεπων εν ταις νεφελαις ου
  5. εν οις ουκ εστιν γινωσκων τις η οδος του πνευματος ως οστα εν γαστρι της κυοφορουσης ουτως ου γνωση τα ποιηματα του θεου οσα ποιησει συν τα
  6. εν πρωια σπειρον το σπερμα σου και εις εσπεραν μη αφετω η χειρ σου οτι ου γινωσκεις ποιον στοιχησει η τουτο η τουτο και εαν τα δυο επι το αυτο
  7. και γλυκυ το φως και αγαθον τοις οφθαλμοις του βλεπειν συν τον
  8. οτι και εαν ετη πολλα ζησεται ο ανθρωπος εν πασιν αυτοις ευφρανθησεται και μνησθησεται τας ημερας του σκοτους οτι πολλαι εσονται παν το ερχομενον
  9. ευφραινου νεανισκε εν νεοτητι σου και αγαθυνατω σε η καρδια σου εν ημεραις νεοτητος σου και περιπατει εν οδοις καρδιας σου και εν ορασει οφθαλμων σου και γνωθι οτι επι πασι τουτοις αξει σε ο θεος εν
  10. και αποστησον θυμον απο καρδιας σου και παραγαγε πονηριαν απο σαρκος σου οτι η νεοτης και η ανοια
Ecclesiastes 11 Text (Latin)
  1. Mitte panem tuum super transeuntes aquas, quia post tempora multa invenies illum.
  2. Da partem septem necnon et octo, quia ignoras quid futurum sit mali super terram.
  3. Si repletæ fuerint nubes, imbrem super terram effundent. Si ceciderit lignum ad austrum aut ad aquilonem, in quocumque loco ceciderit, ibi erit.
  4. Qui observat ventum non seminat ; et qui considerat nubes numquam metet.
  5. Quomodo ignoras quæ sit via spiritus, et qua ratione compingantur ossa in ventre prægnantis, sic nescis opera Dei, qui fabricator est omnium.
  6. Mane semina semen tuum, et vespere ne cesset manus tua : quia nescis quid magis oriatur, hoc aut illud ; et si utrumque simul, melius erit.
  7. Dulce lumen, et delectabile est oculis videre solem.
  8. Si annis multis vixerit homo, et in his omnibus lætatus fuerit, meminisse debet tenebrosi temporis, et dierum multorum, qui cum venerint, vanitatis arguentur præterita.
  9. Lætare ergo, juvenis, in adolescentia tua, et in bono sit cor tuum in diebus juventutis tuæ : et ambula in viis cordis tui, et in intuitu oculorum tuorum, et scito quod pro omnibus his adducet te Deus in judicium.
  10. Aufer iram a corde tuo, et amove malitiam a carne tua : adolescentia enim et voluptas vana sunt.
Ecclesiastes 11 Text (KJV)
  1. Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.
  2. Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.
  3. If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.
  4. He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.
  5. As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
  6. In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.
  7. Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun:
  8. But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.
  9. Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.
  10. Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.
