Ecclesiastes 8 ©
True wisdom inspireth modesty. Kings are to be respected, man's ignorance of futurity; his inability in the day of death. The common abuse of God's forbearance. Good and bad men will surely meet with their deserts in the end, though it fall out otherwise for a time. Cheerful enjoyment of present good commended. God's work is unsearchable.
There is no man that hath power lover the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no 4discharge in that war; mneither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; vthat there be just men, wunto whom it happeneth according to the xwork of the wicked; again, there be wicked men, to whom it happeneth according to the ywork of the righteous: I said that this also is vanity.
Then I beheld all the work of God, ethat a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labour to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea further; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it.
