and fools multiply words. No one knows what is coming-- who can tell someone else what will happen after them?
King James Bible
A fool also is full of words: a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall be after him, who can tell him?
American Standard Version
A fool also multiplieth words: yet man knoweth not what shall be; and that which shall be after him, who can tell him?
Young's Literal Translation
And the fool multiplieth words: 'Man knoweth not that which is, And that which is after him, who doth declare to him?'
Ecclesiastes 10:14 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
A man cannot tell what shall be - A foolish babbling man will talk on every subject, though he can say as little on the past, as he can on the future.
