Ecclesiastes 11:4-6 NIV
4 Whoever watches the wind will not plant;
    whoever looks at the clouds will not reap.

    or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb,
so you cannot understand the work of God,
    the Maker of all things.

    and at evening let your hands not be idle,
for you do not know which will succeed,
    whether this or that,
    or whether both will do equally well.
