Bible: Eccl 2:24-26

Enjoy Work and its Benefits

2:24 There is nothing better for 1  people 2  than 3  to eat and drink,

and to find enjoyment 4  in their 5  work.

I also perceived that this ability to find enjoyment 6  comes from God. 7 

2:25 For no one 8  can eat and drink 9 

or experience joy 10  apart from him. 11 

2:26 For to the one who pleases him, 12  God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy,

but to the sinner, he gives the task of amassing 13  wealth 14 

only to give 15  it 16  to the one who pleases God.

This 17  task of the wicked 18  is futile – like chasing the wind!
