The first one could be 'miners'.

Eccles is right, the book is Ecclesiastes (cut in half).

Hi Diana
Your answer of SMELT could be correct as you would not eat something that smelt(smelled).

A smelt is a fish, member of the salmon family. Apparently it smells like a cucumber, but you definitely wouldn't want to eat it if it "smelt".
