Ecclesiastes 7:28

NET ©

What I have continually sought, I have not found; I have found only one upright man among a thousand, but I have not found one upright woman among all of them.

NIV ©

while I was still searching but not finding—I found one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them all.

NASB ©

which I am still seeking but have not found. I have found one man among a thousand, but I have not found a woman among all these.

NLT ©

Just one out of every thousand men I interviewed can be said to be upright, but not one woman!

MSG ©

But the wisdom I've looked for I haven't found. I didn't find one man or woman in a thousand worth my while.

BBE ©

For which my soul is still searching, but I have it not; one man among a thousand have I seen; but a woman among all these I have not seen.

NRSV ©

which my mind has sought repeatedly, but I have not found. One man among a thousand I found, but a woman among all these I have not found.

NKJV ©

Which my soul still seeks but I cannot find: One man among a thousand I have found, But a woman among all these I have not found.
