|New International Version (© 2011)|
All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing.
King James Bible
All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
American Standard Version
All things are full of weariness; man cannot utter it : the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
Young's Literal Translation
All these things are wearying; a man is not able to speak, the eye is not satisfied by seeing, nor filled is the ear from hearing.
Ecclesiastes 1:8 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
All things are full of labor - It is; impossible to calculate how much anxiety, pain, labor, and fatigue are necessary in order to carry on the common operations of life. But an endless desire of gain, and an endless curiosity to unfitness a variety of results, cause men to, labor on. The eye sees much, but wishes to, see more. The ear hears of many things; but is curious to have the actual knowledge of them. So desire and curiosity carry men, under the Divine providence, through all the labors and pains of life.
