Ecclesiastes 12


12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while
 the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou
 shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;
12:2 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, are
 not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:
12:3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and
 the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease
 because they are few, and those that look out of the windows
 shall be darkened,
12:4 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound
 of the grinding shall be low, and he shall rise up at the voice
 of the bird, and all the daughters of music shall be brought
 low.
12:5 Also [when] they shall be afraid of [that which is] high,
 and fears [shall be] in the way, and the almond tree shall
 flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire
 shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the
 mourners go about the streets:
12:6 Or ever the silver cord shall be loosed, or the golden bowl
 be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the
 wheel broken at the cistern.
12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the
 spirit shall return to God who gave it.
12:8 Vanity of vanities saith the preacher; all [is] vanity.
12:9 And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still
 taught the people knowledge: yes, he gave good heed, and sought
 out, [and] set in order many proverbs.
12:10 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and
 [that which was] written [was] upright, [even] words of truth.
12:11 The words of the wise [are] as goads, and as nails
 fastened [by] the masters of assemblies, [which] are given from
 one shepherd.
12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making
 many books [there is] no end; and much study [is] a weariness
 of the flesh.
12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God,
 and keep his commandments: for this [is] the whole [duty] of
 man.
12:14 For God will bring every work into judgment, with every
 secret thing, whether [it is] good, or whether [it is] evil.
