Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity.
The preacher challenges us: “Life (on earth) is meaningless.”
What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?
Can you answer my challenge? Tell me what is lasting/significant about all our work here on earth.
A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever.
Here's what we see: People are born and die, and return to dust.
The sun rises, and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it rises.
The sun rises and sets and goes back to where it came from.
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.
The winds blow around and around, coming back to where they started.
All streams run to the sea, but the sea is not full; to the place where the streams flow, there they flow again.
The water cycles around and around, but goes back to where it came from.
series
ideaexplanation
All things are full of weariness; a man cannot utter it;
Everything is wearisome beyond description.
the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
No matter how much we see, we are never satisfied. No matter how much we hear, we are not content.
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.
Everything goes around and around in cycles, and nothing new ever happens.
Is there a thing of which it is said, “See, this is new”?
Can you give me one example of something new?
It has been already in the ages before us.
No, you can’t. Anything that looks new is actually old, you just don’t remember it.
questionanswer
There is no remembrance of former things,
We don’t remember what happened in the past,
nor will there be any remembrance of later things yet to be among those who come after.
and in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now.
