Biblical Latin: Whatever your hand finds to do...

Hello Latin Teacher!

I am hoping you can help me translate this bible verse from English into Latin. The verse is

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it mightily (or with all your might).

Thank you for your help.


You're looking for Ecclesiastes 9.10:

Quodcumque facere potest manus tua, instanter operare: quia nec opus, nec ratio, nec sapientia, nec scientia erunt apud inferos, quo tu properas.

Whatever your hand is able to do, do it earnestly. For neither work, nor reason, nor wisdom, nor knowledge will exist in death, toward which you are hurrying.

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
