Ecclesiastes 11:2
Context
Cast Your Bread Upon the Waters

1Cast your bread on the waters: for you shall find it after many days. 2Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for you know not what evil shall be on the earth. 3If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves on the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falls, there it shall be. 4He that observes the wind shall not sow; and he that regards the clouds shall not reap. 5As you know not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so you know not the works of God who makes all. 6In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening withhold not your hand: for you know not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.
