and he would never have seen the sun or known of its existence. Yet he would have had more peace than in growing up to be an unhappy man.
King James Bible
Moreover he hath not seen the sun, nor known any thing: this hath more rest than the other.
Darby Bible Translation
moreover it hath not seen nor known the sun: this hath rest rather than the other.
World English Bible
Moreover it has not seen the sun nor known it. This has rest rather than the other.
Young's Literal Translation
Even the sun he hath not seen nor known, more rest hath this than that.
Ecclesiastes 6:5 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
6:5 More rest - Because he is free from all those encumbrances and vexations to which the covetuous man is long exposed.
His birth would have been meaningless, and he would have ended in darkness. He wouldn't even have had a name,
He might live a thousand years twice over but still not find contentment. And since he must die like everyone else--well, what's the use?
Light is sweet; how pleasant to see a new day dawning.
