Pristine Grace

Eccl 3:18-22, (KJV)
18  I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
19  For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
20  All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
21  Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
22  Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?

Eccl 3:18-22, (MKJV)
18  I said in my heart concerning the matter of sons of men, that God might reveal them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
19  For that which happens to the sons of men also happens to beasts even one thing happens to them. As this one dies, so that one dies; yea, they all have one breath; so that a man has no advantage over a beast; for all is vanity.
20  All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all return to dust again.
21  Who knows the spirit of man that goes upward, and the spirit of the beast that goes downward?
22  Therefore I have seen that there is nothing better than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion; for who can bring him to see what shall be after him?

Eccl 3:18-22, (NASB)
18  I said to myself concerning the sons of men, "God has surely tested them in order for them to see that they are but beasts."
19  For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same. As one dies so dies the other; indeed, they all have the same breath and there is no advantage for man over beast, for all is vanity.
20  All go to the same place. All came from the dust and all return to the dust.
21  Who knows that the breath of man ascends upward and the breath of the beast descends downward to the earth?
22  I have seen that nothing is better than that man should be happy in his activities, for that is his lot. For who will bring him to see what will occur after him?

Eccl 3:18-22, (LITV)
18  I said in my heart concerning the issue of the sons of men, that God may test them and see that they by themselves are beasts.
19  For that which happens to the sons of men, and that which happens to beasts, even one event is to them. As this one dies, so that one dies; yea, one breath is to all; so that there is to the man no advantage over the beast; for all is vanity.
20  All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all return to the dust.
21  Who knows the spirit of the sons of man, whether it goes upward; and the spirit of the beast, whether it goes downward to the earth?
22  And I have seen that nothing is better than that the man should rejoice in his works; for that is his portion; for who can bring him to see what shall be after him?
