Ecclesiastes 1:2-11
Issues of life.
Vanity, vain, something fleeting... summarizes a conclusion
Ecclesiastes means PREACHER
We will learn from this book,not through the experiences of Solomon, but through the principles he drew out of it.
Seemingly fleeting and small gain from all of man's activity in the daily life. provides the question that frames his entire quest: People work hard in life, but what is really the point of it all? The implied answer to the rhetorical question is, “Nothing!”
Endless cycle, does not bring security or meaning
Fails to produce an enduring satisfaction..nothing new and nothing will be remembered.
No gain in paningkamot kay all things are full of weariness
Not remember kay no gain in paningkamot THEREFORE
Philippians 3:8 2 Corinthians 5:15
mp-all
All things are full of weariness kay the earth remains & nothing is new
c Vanity 1 of vanities, says a the Preacher, c vanity of vanities!
d All is vanity.

e What f does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?
A generation goes,
and a generation comes,
progression
but g the earth remains forever.
h The sun rises,
and the sun goes down,
and hastens 1 to the place where it rises.
i The wind blows to the south
and goes around to the north;
around and around goes the wind,
and on its circuits the wind returns.
All j streams run to the sea,
but the sea is not full;
concessive
to the place where the streams flow, there they flow again.

series
All things are full of weariness;
a man cannot utter it;
k the eye is not satisfied with seeing,
nor the ear filled with hearing.
l What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there a thing of which it is said, “See, this is new”?
It has been m already in the ages before us.
