Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
For the living know they will die; but the dead do not know anything, nor have they any longer a reward, for their memory is forgotten.

King James Bible
For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
For the living know that they will die, but the dead don't know anything. There is no longer a reward for them because the memory of them is forgotten.
