For all his days are pain and his business is frustrating; yes, even at night his heart does not rest. This also is pointless. Bible see other translations

“business.” In this context, “business” is used with the wider connotation of what someone does in life. What occupies his time, what he is “busy with.”

“pointless.” See commentary on Ecclesiastes 1:2.
