Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon

Ecclesiastes Summary

  • Each generation must learn, work, and discover wisdom, knowledge, and joy.
  • There are appointed times to each generation.
  • The works of God remain forever.
  • The works of man, whom are they given to?
  • One hand of rest is better than two fists of labor.
  • Two are better than one.
  • Listen and learn. Know the proper time and procedures.
  • You must know what will happen before you can know when it will happen.
  • Enjoy the reward of your labor, but pass on wisdom with your inheritance.
  • Your time on earth is short.
  • No one--rich or poor, wise or foolish, good or evil--controls his life after death.
  • God judges all things. Fear Him and keep His commandments.
  • Do your work with all your might, enjoying your days, your wife, your life, while remembering your Creator.
Song of Solomon Summary
  • The bride who seeks the king is beautiful to him.
  • Rest in his shade. 
  • Taste his fruit.
  • Look for his coming.
  • Listen for his voice.
  • If he's not to be found--seek him.
  • Embrace him when he's found and don't let him go until intimacy comes.
  • He comes with warriors and a wedding day crown.
  • Offer yourself, your fragrant garden, your choice fruits of intimacy to him.
  • Respond to his call. Don't hesitate.
  • Seek him and speak of his beauty. He speaks of yours.
  • His desire is for you.
  • Kiss him openly.
  • Give what is due from his vineyard--to him--and for the care of the fruit.
  • Let him hear your voice and hasten his return.
