2 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; (KJV) Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near when you will say, I have no delight in them (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:1

3 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain: (KJV) before the sun and the light, the moon and the stars are darkened, and clouds return after the rain; (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:2

4 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, (KJV) in the day that the watchmen of the house tremble, and mighty men stoop, the grinding ones stand idle because they are few, and those who look through windows grow dim; (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:3

5 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low; (KJV) and the doors on the street are shut as the sound of the grinding mill is low, and one will arise at the sound of the bird, and all the daughters of song will sing softly. (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:4

6 Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets: (KJV) Furthermore, men are afraid of a high place and of terrors on the road; the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper drags himself along, and the caperberry is ineffective. For man goes to his eternal home while mourners go about in the street. (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:5

7 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. (KJV) Remember Him before the silver cord is broken and the golden bowl is crushed, the pitcher by the well is shattered and the wheel at the cistern is crushed; (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:6

8 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. (KJV) then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it. (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:7

9 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity. (KJV) Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, all is vanity! (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:8

10 And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. (KJV) In addition to being a wise man, the Preacher also taught the people knowledge; and he pondered, searched out and arranged many proverbs. (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:9

11 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. (KJV) The Preacher sought to find delightful words and to write words of truth correctly. (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:10

12 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd. (KJV) The words of wise men are like goads, and masters of these collections are like well-driven nails; they are given by one Shepherd. (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:11

13 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. (KJV) But beyond this, my son, be warned: the writing of many books is endless, and excessive devotion to books is wearying to the body. (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:12

14 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. (KJV) The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:13

15 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. (KJV) For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil. (NASB) Ecclesiastes 12:14
