ECCLESIASTES 1:13-15

Comparative text of the Douay-Rheims and Latin Vulgate text.
I've always been partial to St. Jerome's translation of this verse.

113And I proposed in my mind to seek and search out wisely concerning all things that are done under the sun. This painful occupation hath God given to the children of men, to be exercised therein.et proposui in animo meo quaerere et investigare sapienter de omnibus quae fiunt sub sole hanc occupationem pessimam dedit Deus filiis hominum ut occuparentur in ea
114I have seen all things that are done under the sun, and behold all is vanity, and vexation of spirit.vidi quae fiunt cuncta sub sole et ecce universa vanitas et adflictio spiritus
115The perverse are hard to be corrected, and the number of fools is infinite.perversi difficile corriguntur et stultorum infinitus est numerus
