|New International Version (© 2011)|
Is there anything of which one can say, "Look! This is something new"? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.
King James Bible
Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
American Standard Version
Is there a thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been long ago, in the ages which were before us.
Young's Literal Translation
There is a thing of which one saith: 'See this, it is new!' already it hath been in the ages that were before us!
Ecclesiastes 1:10 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Is there any thing, etc. - The original is beautiful. "Is there any thing which will say, See this! it is new?" Men may say this of their discoveries, etc.; but universal nature says, It is not new. It has been, and it will be.
