There was no end to all the people, even to all those whom he was over, yet those who come later will not rejoice in him. Surely this also is pointless and herding the wind. Bible

“yet those who come later will not rejoice in him.” Peoples’ historical memory is notoriously short-lived. The people who come after even a good king do not usually remember much about him.

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