Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
Because all his days his task is painful and grievous; even at night his mind does not rest. This too is vanity.

King James Bible
For all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
For all his days are filled with grief, and his occupation is sorrowful; even at night, his mind does not rest. This too is futile.
