Ecclesiastes 1:13; Ecclesiastes 1:12; Ecclesiastes 1:9-11
I devoted myself to search for understanding and to explore by wisdom everything being done under heaven. I soon discovered that God has dealt a tragic existence to the human race.
I, the Teacher, was king of Israel, and I lived in Jerusalem.
History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new.
Sometimes people say, “Here is something new!” But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new.
We don’t remember what happened in the past, and in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now.
