In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other, in order that man cannot find out anything about his future. Bible see other translations

“about his future.” The Hebrew simply reads, “after him,” but the phrase is unclear in and of itself. Some commentators say it refers to the person’s future, while others say it is referring to after the person dies. However, the fact that the text seems to be clearly referring to the person being joyful in prosperity and in deep thought and consideration during adversity, the weight of evidence favors the verse being about what will happen to a person in their own future.
