 I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, 
and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor - it is the gift of God.
I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him.
