Meditation Ecclesiastes 6a

I have seen another evil under the sun, and it weighs heavily on mankind: God gives some people wealth, possessions and honour, so that they lack nothing their hearts desire, but God does not grant them the ability to enjoy them, and strangers enjoy them instead. This is meaningless, a grievous evil. A man may have […]

Meditation Ecclesiastes 5c

If you see the poor oppressed in a district, and justice and rights denied, do not be surprised at such things; for one official is eyed by a higher one, and over them both are others higher still. The increase from the land is taken by all; the king himself profits from the fields. Whoever loves […]

Meditation Ecclesiastes 5b

Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Go near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools, who do not know that they do wrong. Do not be quick with your mouth,    do not be hasty in your heart    to utter anything before God.God is in heaven    and you are on earth,    so […]

Meditation Ecclesiastes 4c

Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: I saw the tears of the oppressed –    and they have no comforter;power was on the side of their oppressors –    and they have no comforter.And I declared that the dead,    who had already died,are happier than the living,    who are still alive.But better than both    is […]

Meditation Ecclesiastes 4b

And I saw that all toil and all achievement spring from one person’s envy of another. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. Fools fold their hands    and ruin themselves.Better one handful with tranquillity    than two handfuls with toil    and chasing after the wind. Again I saw something meaningless under the sun: there was a man […]

Meditation Ecclesiastes 3e

I also said to myself, ‘As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: as one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; humans have no advantage […]

Meditation Ecclesiastes 3d

What do workers gain from their toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than […]

Meditation Ecclesiastes 3c

There is a time for everything,    and a season for every activity under the heavens:        a time to be born and a time to die,    a time to plant and a time to uproot,    a time to kill and a time to heal,    a time to tear down and a time to build,    a time to weep and a time to […]
