ECCLESIASTES 1:1-18 EVERYTHING IS MEANINGLESS




EVERYTHING IS MEANINGLESS


ECCLESIASTES 1:1-18


1-The words of the teacher," son of David,king in Jerusalem:


2-"Meaningless! Meaningless!"


says the teacher.


"Utterly meaningless!


Everything is meaningless."


3-What does man gain from all his labor


at which he toils under the sun?


4-Generatins come and generations go,


but the earth remains forever.


5-The sun rises and the sun sets,


and hurries back to where it rises.


6-The wind blows to the south


and turns to the north;


round and round it goes,


ever returning on its course.


7-All streams flow into the sea,


yet the sea is never full.


To the place the stream comes from,


there they return againe.


8-All things are wearisome,


more than one can say.


The eye never has enough seeing,


nor the ear its fill of hearing.


9-What has been will be againe,


what has been done will be done againe;


there is nouthing new under the sun.


10-Is there anything of which you can say,


" Look! This is something new"?


It was here already,long ago;


it was here before our time.


11-There is no remembrance of men of old,


and even those are yet to come


will not be emembered


by those who follow.


12-I, the teacher, was king over Israel in Jerusalem.


13-I devoted my self to study and to explore by wisdom all


that is done under heaven.What heavy burden God


has laid on men!


14I have seen all things that are


done under the sun; all of them are meaningless,a


chasing after the wind.


15-What is twisted cannot be straightened;


what is lacking cannot be counted.


16-I thought to my self," Look,I have grown and increeased


in wisdom more than any one who has ruled


over Jerusalem before me; I have experienced much of


wisdom and knowledge." and also of madness and folly,


but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind.


18-For with much wisdom comes much sorrow;


the more knowledge, the more grief.

    I believe the teacher," son of David,king in Jerusalem was Solomon.

    King Solomon sinned by acquiring too many wives and horses because he thought he knew the reason for the Biblical prohibition and thought it did not apply to him.
    Solomon's "wives turned his heart after other gods", their own national deities, to whom Solomon built temples for, And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned away from the LORD.
    Knowing this, how do you expect the man to feel about the world, but to be Meaningless! Meaningless!"

    Ok I do not take it that way.The fact of the matter is everything that we do on earth is meaningless because in the long run we can not take anything with us when we go.No matter what we do it is all for nothing in the end.That is the way I take it.Have a good day.

    I can understand that logic.
    But I can't help knowing that everything we do on this earth is teaching those who come after us the ways of life. Everything we do is not meangingless if others take that which we have taught them to make their lives better.
    We don't need to take anything with us where we are going. It is what we leave behind that pushes the human race forward.
    So all is "not" for naught !
