“What gain have the workers received
From their toil?
I have seen the business
That God has given to everyone
To be busy with.
He has made everything suitable
For its time.
He has put a sense of past and future
Into human minds.
Yet they cannot find out
What God has done
From the beginning to the end.”
God has given workers things to busy themselves with, but they do not know their gain or profit. Everything, however, is suitable for its time. Humans have a sense of past and future, not just the present. Despite this, they do not know what God has done from the beginning until now or what he will do in the future.
