Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
Better what the eyes see than wandering desire. This too is futile and a pursuit of the wind.

New American Standard Bible
What the eyes see is better than what the soul desires. This too is futility and a striving after wind.

King James Bible
Better [is] the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the desire: this [is] also vanity and vexation of spirit.
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
It is better to focus on what you can see than to meander after your self-interest; this also is pointless and a chasing after wind.

American Standard Version
Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the desire: this also is vanity and a striving after wind.

Young's Literal Translation
Better is the sight of the eyes than the going of the soul. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.
