Ecclesiastes 8:1

 

KJV 1 Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man's wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.

 

WEB 1 Who is like the wise man? And who knows the interpretation of a thing? A man’s wisdom makes his face shine, and the hardness of his face is changed.

 

 

These are my thoughts.

Where do find our wisdom from man or from God?

Ecclesiastes 8:2

 

KJV 2 I counsel thee to keep the king's commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God.

 

WEB 2 I say, “Keep the king’s command!” because of the oath to God.

 

 

 

These are my thoughts.

We should not make oaths but simply live to follow the Word of our Lord and King.

Ecclesiastes 8:3
KJV 3 Be not hasty to go out of his sight: stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him.
WEB 3 Don’t be hasty to go out of his presence. Don’t persist in an evil thing, for he does whatever pleases him,
 
These are my thoughts.
This is the way the world lives we are to live for Him so we stay in His presence.

Ecclesiastes 8:4

 

KJV 4 Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?

 

 

WEB 4 for the king’s word is supreme. Who can say to him, “What are you doing?”

 

 

These are my thoughts.

Kings have power but the Lord has all power.

Ecclesiastes 8:5

 

KJV 5 Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment.

 

 

WEB 5 Whoever keeps the commandment shall not come to harm, and his wise heart will know the time and procedure.

 

 

 

These are my thoughts.

We are wise to follow God’s commandments and stay away from evil.

Ecclesiastes 8:6

 

KJV 6 Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him.

 

 

 

WEB 6 For there is a time and procedure for every purpose, although the misery of man is heavy on him.

 

 

 

These are my thoughts.

God has a purpose for all things.

Ecclesiastes 8:7
KJV 7 For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?
WEB 7 For he doesn’t know that which will be; for who can tell him how it will be?
 
These are my thoughts.
Only God truly knows, this is why we have to walk after Him thru faith.

Ecclesiastes 8:8
KJV 8 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
AKJV 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; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
 
These are my thoughts.
It is only by Jesus that we can do this.
