Ecclesiastes: The Greek rendering of the Hebrew Koheleth, which means "Preacher."
The old and traditional view of the authorship of this book
attributes it to Solomon. This view can be satisfactorily maintained,
though others date it from the Captivity. The writer represents
himself implicitly as Solomon
(Ecclesiastes 1:12) It has been appropriately
styled The Confession of King Solomon. "The writer is a man who has
sinned in giving way to selfishness and sensuality, who has paid the
penalty of that sin in satiety and weariness of life, but who has
through all this been under the discipline of a divine education, and
has learned from it the lesson which God meant to teach him." "The
writer concludes by pointing out that the secret of a true life is
that a man should consecrate the vigour of his youth to God." The
key-note of the book is sounded in ch.
(Ecclesiastes 1:2) "Vanity of vanities!
saith the Preacher, Vanity of vanities! all is vanity!" i.e., all
man's efforts to find happiness apart from God are without result.
