He also supplies Koheleth with a text by the pessimistic exclamation, “For what vanity hast thou created all the children of men”!
The objects of Koheleth's satire are of a varied description.
You will discover the profound truth of the saying of my friend Koheleth, that there is nothing new under the sun.
Koheleth (the preacher, originally gatherer), the Hebrew name for the book of Ecclesiastes, and a personification of wisdom.
The Hebrew name of this book is Koheleth, respecting the meaning of which there has been much discussion.
First, Koheleth is endorsed as an industrious, discriminating and instructive writer.
In Koheleth it is written: "To add to knowledge is to add to pain."
More than this, there are many resemblances between the dialect of Koheleth and that of Mishna.
Koheleth, though his quotations are godless, believes there is a God, and a formidable one.
There was, as we see in Koheleth, a prevailing tradition that Solomon felt the hollowness of his palatial life.
