|Overview - Ecclesiastes 4|
|1||Vanity is increased unto men by oppression;|
Ecclesiastes 4:14 (King James Version)
For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.
- For out
- This is probably an allusion to some fact with which we are unacquainted. History furnishes many instances of mean persons raised to sovereign authority, and of kings being reduced to the meanest offices, and to a morsel. Agrippa mounted the throne of Israel after having been long in prison; and similar instances are not wanting in modern times.
