New American Standard Bible
But better [off] than both of them is the one who has never existed, who has never seen the evil activity that is done under the sun.

King James Bible
Yea, better [is he] than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
Better than both of them is someone who has not yet been born, because he hasn't experienced evil on earth.

yea, better than them both did I esteem him that hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.

Young's Literal Translation
And better than both of them is he who hath not yet been, in that he hath not seen the evil work that hath been done under the sun.
