Ecclesiastes - KJV & NIV

>
«Ecclesiastes 4:12»
And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not enquire wisely concerning this.Do not say, “Why were the old days better than these?” For it is not wise to ask such questions.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.
He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.
For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.So then, banish anxiety from your heart and cast off the troubles of your body, for youth and vigor are meaningless.
As he came forth of his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.Everyone comes naked from their mother’s womb, and as everyone comes, so they depart. They take nothing from their toil that they can carry in their hands.
I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.
In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider this: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, no one can discover anything about their future.

Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
and why art thou disquieted within me?
hope thou in God:
for I shall yet praise him,
who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
