Bible Chinese Union Revised VersionUpdated King James Version (UKJV)KJV
001 凡事都有定期,天下萬務都有定時。 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

009 這樣看來,作事的人在他的勞碌上有什麼益處呢? What profit has he that works in that wherein he labours? What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
010 我見神叫世人勞苦,使他們在其中受經練。 I have seen the travail, which God has given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
011 神造萬物,各按其時成為美好;又將世事(world)安置在世人心裡。然而神從始至終的作為,人不能參透。 He has made every thing beautiful in his time: also he has set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end. He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
012 我知道沒有善在世人裡面(no good in them),世人莫強如終身喜樂行善。 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
013 並且人人吃喝,在他一切勞碌中享福,這也是神的恩賜。 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.
014 我知道神一切所作的都必永存;無所增添,無所減少。神這樣行,是要人在他面前存敬畏的心。 I know that, whatsoever God does, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God does it, that men should fear before him. I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
015 現今的事早先就有了,將來的事早已也有了,並且神使已過的事重新再來(或譯:並且神再尋回已過的事)。 That which has been is now; and that which is to be has already been; and God requires that which is past. That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.
016 我又見日光之下,在審判之處有奸惡,在公義之處也有奸惡。 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there. And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
017 我心裡說,神必審判義人和惡人;因為在那裡,各樣事務,一切工作,都有定時。 I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work. I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.
018 我心裡說,這乃為世人的緣故,是神要顯明(manifest)他們,使他們覺得自己不過是獸(are beasts)。 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
019 因為世人遭遇的,獸也遭遇,所遭遇的都是一樣:這個怎樣死,那個也怎樣死,氣息都是一樣。人不能強於獸,都是虛空。 For that which befalls the sons of men befalls beasts; even one thing befalls them: as the one dies, so dies the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man has no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
020 都歸一處,都是出於塵土,也都歸於塵土。 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
021 誰知道人的靈是往上升,獸的靈(spirit)是下入地呢? Who knows the spirit of man that goes upward, and the spirit of the beast that goes downward to the earth? Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
022 故此,我見人莫強如在他經營的事上喜樂,因為這是他的分。他身後的事誰能使他回來得見呢? Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him? Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
