Context
From Dust to Dust

16And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there. 17I said in my heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work. 18I said in my heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. 19For that which befalls the sons of men befalls beasts; even one thing befalls them: as the one dies, so dies the other; yes, they have all one breath; so that a man has no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. 20All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. 21Who knows the spirit of man that goes upward, and the spirit of the beast that goes downward to the earth? 22Why 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?
