13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments,
For this is man’s all.
14 For God will bring every work into judgment,
Including every secret thing,
Whether good or evil.
Here is the conclusion of the matter:
The end of the matter is:
Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.
Fear God, worship Him with awe-filled reverence, knowing that He is almighty God and keep His commandments, for this applies to every person.
Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth,
Before the difficult days come,
And the years draw near when you say,
“I have no pleasure in them”:
Remember your Creator in the days of your youth.
Remember thoughtfully your Creator in the days of your youth for you are not your own, but His.
As you do not know what is the way of the wind,
Or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child,
So you do not know the works of God who makes everything.
As we do not know the path of the wind
Just as we do not know the way and path of the wind
how the body is formed in a mother’s womb
how the bones are formed in the womb of a pregnant woman
so we cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.
even so we do not know the activity of God who makes all things.
