Ecclesiastes 8:6 Because to every purpose there is time and judgment.(or, to every purpose there is a proper time), therefore the misery of man is great upon him.

Ecclesiastes 8:7 For he knows not that which shall be; for who can tell him when it shall be?

Ecclesiastes 8:8 There is no man that has power over the spirit to retain the spirit, neither has he power in the day of death. And there is no discharge in that war.(the 'war' that death has over us comes with no escape), neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.(the ego can screw us up so much that some even come to believe this).

Ecclesiastes 8:11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil..(?)

Ecclesiastes 8:12 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times and his days be prolonged.(though not happy days; days are prolonged in hope of change: 2Peter 3:9; Matthew 9:13; John 3:17; God is patient {Romans 15:5; Colossians 1:11), yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him.(they realize they are always in the presence of God).

Ecclesiastes 8:13 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he feareth not before God.

Ecclesiastes 8:14 There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just men, unto whom it happens according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked men to whom it happens according to the work of the righteous; I said that this also is vanity.(trying to figure out the whys and wherefores of things in this world can be frustrating, so just.focus on what counts and that is love:.Matthew 13:16).

Ecclesiastes 8:17 Then I beheld all the work of God, that 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.

Ecclesiastes 9:1 For all this I.(who is 'I'?).considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous and the wise and their works are in the hand of God. No man knows either love or hatred by all that is before them.(because love and hatred can't be learned by examining the created world by using crackpot worldly theories such as the theory of evolution and by ridiculous thinking as 'leave him alone with his hurts, it's his karma he has to work out' an excuse to leave hurting people on their own:.Matthew 25:35-40; the things of the spirit in man receive information from the invisible mind, which one can agree with and adopt if he so chooses or choose perhaps negative thoughts coming from the mass mind; one will be of high consciousness and the other of low consciousness).

Ecclesiastes 9:2 All things come alike to all. There is one event to the righteous and to the wicked, to the good and to the clean and to the unclean, to him that sacrifices and to him that sacrifices not. As is the good, so is the sinner and he that swears, as he that fears an oath..(this was how Solomon, whose wisdom on life, noted the purpose of a life lived out of an ordinary consciousness:.Ecclesiastes 12:13,14)

Ecclesiastes 9:3 This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all, yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil and madness is in their heart.(madness on Earth not tolerated beyond it).while they live and after that they go to the dead.

Those with evil hearts think not about the end of themselves, an end which comes to all mankind unless he or she changes (Matthew 21:32) from his evil ways and if he does, then what?.

Ecclesiastes 9:4 For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope, for a living dog is better than a dead lion.

Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die, but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward, for the memory of them is forgotten.

Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die, but the dead.(here the verse is referring to what is commonly known as living human beings who pass on, that is, their time for what they were on Earth for is now over {verse 6 below}, because the soul they have has always been integrated with that energy and information which is eternal; see the Predestination subject).know not anything.(original for 'not anything' can just as easily be 'somewhat', that is, they know some things, as they did before on Earth in the physical, just they no longer can react to physical things of the Earth in the learning process of what the Earth is here for in the first place, because they are no longer part of the Earthly realm {that's why they all want to come back here}. The physical processor that processes information derived from use of our senses has gone at death like the rest of the physical body. The brain is a processor like a computer's processor in that it processes information received; the dead are those without the ability to be in a human physical body, that is, until they are resurrected), neither have they any more a reward.(for their physical efforts, because they are not in the physical world anymore, their physical time is over for efforts to give or gain), for the memory of them is forgotten..(the verse is saying to make your life count spiritually, so that you do get a reward; we seldom even give little thought to those passed on).(Ezekiel 18:4; Psalms 112:6 "...the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance." Malachi 3:16 "...a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD and that thought upon his name.")

Ecclesiastes 9:6 Also their love and their hatred and their envy, is now perished, neither have they any more a portion for ever in anything that is done under the sun..(their time has come and gone; they are now 'out of it')

Ecclesiastes 9:7 Go your way eat your bread with joy and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God now.(original 'already', so live your life!).accepts your works.

Ecclesiastes 9:8 Let thy garments be always white and let thy head lack no ointment.

Ecclesiastes 9:9 Live joyfully with the wife whom you love all the days of the life of your vanity.(the physical life that you chose to have with each other), which he has given you under the sun. All the days of your vanity.(your physical life with expressions of your being you use daily in communication).that is your portion in this life and in your labour which you take under the sun..(be content)

Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatsoever you hand finds to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither you go..(in other words, this is your time now)

Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned and saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill, but time.(original is 'circumstances', 'season').and chance.(original 'meetings', 'occurrences').happens.(original is 'are caused to meet', 'occurs').

it's saying that to humans, life and its circumstances seem to be because of happenstance, but Creator-God is the engineer behind it all {Matthew 10:29-31}, as verse 1 of this chapter 9 shows

Ecclesiastes 9:12 For man also knows not his time. As the fishes that are taken in an evil net and as the birds that are caught in the snare, so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falls suddenly upon them.

Ecclesiastes 9:13-16 This wisdom have I seen also under the sun and it seemed great unto me. There was a little city and few men within it and there came a great king against it and besieged it and built great bulwarks against it. Now there was found in it a poor wise man and he by his wisdom delivered the city, yet no man remembered that same poor man. Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength, nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised and his words are not heard.

Ecclesiastes 9:17 The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that rules among fools.

Ecclesiastes 9:18 Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good.

Ecclesiastes 10:1 Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour, so does a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour..(amplified)

Ecclesiaste 10:3 Yea also, when he that is a fool walks by the way, his wisdom fails him and he says to every one that he is a fool.

Ecclesiaste 10:4 If the spirit of the ruler rise up against you, leave not thy place.(don't lose your composure), for yielding.(a healing wholesome attitude of non selfishness and one of just wanting to sincerely make things better for all).pacifies great offences.(Proverbs 15:1).

Ecclesiastes 10:11 Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment.(original is 'hissing'; they'll bite without warning by hissing').and a babbler is no better.

Ecclesiastes 10:12 The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.

Ecclesiastes 10:13 The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness and the end of his talk is mischievous madness.

Ecclesiastes 10:14 A fool also is full of words. A man cannot tell what shall be and what shall be after him, who can tell him.(Proverbs 27:22)?

Ecclesiastes 10:15 The labour of the foolish wearies every one of them, because he knows not how to go to the city..(Barnes Notes: the sense is, that he fool wearies himself with ineffectual attempts, he has not sufficient knowledge for the transaction of ordinary business)

Ecclesiastes 10:19 A feast is made for laughter and wine makes merry, but money answers all things.

Ecclesiastes 10:20 Curse not the king, no not in thy thought and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber, for a bird of the air shall carry the voice and that which has wings shall tell the matter..(Romans 13:1-5)

Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast your bread upon the waters for you shall find it after many days..(here and there on the water; not all in one place)

Ecclesiastes 11:2 Give a portion to seven and also to eight, for you know not what evil shall be upon the earth.

Ecclesiastes 11:3,4 If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falls, there it shall be. He that observes the wind shall not sow and he that regards the clouds shall not reap.

Ecclesiastes 11:5 As you know not what is the way of the spirit nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child.(all comes from one cell), even so you know not the works of God who makes all.(Exodus 19:5)..(why don't we find and know?)

Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw near, when you say, I have no pleasure in them;

Ecclesiastes 12:5 Also when they be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way and the almond tree shall flourish and the grasshopper shall be a burden and desire shall fail, because man goes to his long home and the mourners go about the streets.

Ecclesiastes 12:6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed or the golden bowl.(holding oil, symbolic of the spirit/mind/brain connection).be broken or the pitcher be broken at the fountain or the wheel broken at the cistern..(that is, life falls apart on you)(Adam Clarke's Commentary."The silver cord is the medulla oblongata or spinal marrow, from which all the nerves proceed, as itself does from the brain. This is termed a cord, from its exact similitude to one and a silver cord, from its colour, as it strikingly exhibits the silver gray.".Barnes Notes."The silver cord is the soul which holds the body in life")

Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it..(that's what happened to Emmanuel's spirit too:.Luke 23:46)

Ecclesiastes 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God and keep his commandments.(in today's terms, comprehend how great Creator-God is and be of the same consciousness, which is what?, because all the old commandments are gone), for this is the whole duty of man..(original of 'this is the whole duty of man' is just one word 'man', meaning the real man, the whole man, the real you;, or this is what man is all about, why it is that he is here; this is what brings the real you to the fore; the whole lesson of the Old Testment was about how much better it would be when one turns to God and learns of Him)

Ecclesiastes 12:14 For God.(what is Creator-God?).shall.(no 'shall' about it, as though some ominous event is awaiting a person, alluding to some future judgment; word 'shall' is not in original).bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good or whether it be evil..(verse is talking about the dynamic law of the universe, that of reaping and sowing)
