Enjoy life with the woman whom you love all the days of your [a](A)fleeting life which He has given to you under the sun[b]; for this is your (B)reward in life and in your toil in which you have labored under the sun.

Whatever Your Hand Finds to Do

10 Whatever your hand finds to do, (C)do it with all your might; for there is no (D)activity or planning or knowledge or wisdom in (E)Sheol where you are going.

11 I again saw under the sun that the (F)race is not to the swift and the (G)battle is not to the warriors, and neither is bread to the wise nor (H)wealth to the discerning nor favor to men of ability; for time and (I)chance overtake them all.
