Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
This too is a sickening tragedy: exactly as he comes, so he will go. What does the one gain who struggles for the wind?

New American Standard Bible
This also is a grievous evil-- exactly as a man is born, thus will he die. So what is the advantage to him who toils for the wind?

King James Bible
And this also [is] a sore evil, [that] in all points as he came, so shall he go: and what profit hath he that hath laboured for the wind?
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
This is also a painful tragedy: However a person comes, he also departs; so what does he gain as he labors after the wind?

American Standard Version
And this also is a grievous evil, that in all points as he came, so shall he go: and what profit hath he that he laboreth for the wind?

Young's Literal Translation
And this also is a painful evil, just as he came, so he goeth, and what advantage is to him who laboureth for wind?
