15th Century Illuminated Bible Intro to Ecclesiastes 1  "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity." What profit has a man from all his labor in which he toils under the sun?  One generation passes away, and another generation comes; but the earth abides forever.  The sun also rises, and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it arose.  The wind goes toward the south, and turns around to the north; the wind whirls about continually, and comes again on its circuit.
