Ecclesiastes 9:3

Context
NET ©

This is the unfortunate fact 1  about everything that happens on earth: 2  the same fate awaits 3  everyone. In addition to this, the hearts of all people 4  are full of evil, and there is folly in their hearts during their lives – then they die. 5 

NIV ©

This is the evil in everything that happens under the sun: The same destiny overtakes all. The hearts of men, moreover, are full of evil and there is madness in their hearts while they live, and afterwards they join the dead.

NASB ©

This is an evil in all that is done under the sun, that there is one fate for all men. Furthermore, the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil and insanity is in their hearts throughout their lives. Afterwards they go to the dead.

NLT ©

It seems so tragic that one fate comes to all. That is why people are not more careful to be good. Instead, they choose their own mad course, for they have no hope. There is nothing ahead but death anyway.

MSG ©

I find this outrageous--the worst thing about living on this earth--that everyone's lumped together in one fate. Is it any wonder that so many people are obsessed with evil? Is it any wonder that people go crazy right and left? Life leads to death. That's it.

BBE ©

This is evil in all things which are done under the sun: that there is one fate for all, and the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil; while they have life their hearts are foolish, and after that—to the dead.

NRSV ©

This is an evil in all that happens under the sun, that the same fate comes to everyone. Moreover, the hearts of all are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead.

NKJV ©

This is an evil in all that is done under the sun: that one thing happens to all. Truly the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “evil.”

tn Heb “under the sun.”

tn The term “awaits” does not appear in the Hebrew text, but is supplied in the translation for smoothness and stylistic reasons.

tn Heb “also the heart of the sons of man.” Here “heart” is a collective singular.

tn Heb “and after that [they go] to [the place of] the dead.”
