Ecclesiastes 8:16-17

Someone linked me a book from the Bible earlier, Ecclesiastes. I've never read much of the Bible- it's not my thing, and I wasn't raised in that tradition. But some parts of this book really spoke to me. This passage in particular was beautiful.

This is Ecclesiastes 8:16-17.

Order of Texts: English -- Sandic


16 When I applied my mind to know wisdom and to observe the labor that is done on earth—
people getting no sleep day or night—
17 then I saw all that God has done. No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all their efforts to search it out, no one can discover its meaning. Even if the wise claim they know, they cannot really comprehend it.


16. Gre aan fele: fian esmeja aan ade san fuun ba fuunsa, wii aan raug ta santabin o priia oahl umain -- otiab kamain ba keeman meer mon wii meer nosr baneot katee--
fele: fuun ba ivi biab basma jwr esraug fele:.
17. Keemania ta dabin pal uveen ma mlii otoka, otiab kaneot meeaa aan fe. Jjiave ta petan ivin aan biab su, fuun ba skra ba gator katetade san. Fii aan ta fuunsain omii aan fuun ba osa, jjiave ba mii biab gator otefe.
