Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
Therefore, I hated life because the work that was done under the sun was distressing to me. For everything is futile and a pursuit of the wind.

New American Standard Bible
So I hated life, for the work which had been done under the sun was grievous to me; because everything is futility and striving after wind.

King James Bible
Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun [is] grievous unto me: for all [is] vanity and vexation of spirit.
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
So I hated life, because whatever is done on earth causes me trouble—it's all pointless, like chasing after the wind.

American Standard Version
So I hated life, because the work that is wrought under the sun was grievous unto me; for all is vanity and a striving after wind.

Young's Literal Translation
And I have hated life, for sad to me is the work that hath been done under the sun, for the whole is vanity and vexation of spirit.
