“Human insight cannot give a clue as to what is meaningful; only ‘the wisdom that comes from heaven’ can imbue one’s life with lasting purpose.  To illustrate the value of divine wisdom, the Teacher then gives several proverbs and wise sayings of the type contained in the more complete book of Proverbs.”

Solomon’s Glory Fades

“An inspired writer of a later time will issue the warning, ‘If you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!’  It is an appropriate warning for both men and nations and surprising that the wisest man of the age could so easily ignore the warning.  Yet how often do men fall at the height of success, and the greater the height, the greater the fall!  Solomon enters into forbidden marriages with women of foreign extract and is soon influenced to worship their foreign gods.  Solomon’s fall stands as a powerful reminder of how easy it is to turn from adoration to idolatry.”
