Ecclesiastes 12 ©
The Creator to be remembered in due time. The Preacher's care to edify. The general conclusion, that man's chief concern is to fear God, and obey his laws.
While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:
Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and gthe almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to hhis long home, and the mourners go about the streets:
jThen shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and kthe spirit shall return unto God lwho gave it.
