|Overview - Ecclesiastes 1|
|1||The preacher shews that all human courses are vain;|
|4||because the creatures are restless in their courses,|
|9||they bring forth nothing new, and all old things are forgotten;|
|12||and because he has found it so in the studies of wisdom.|
Ecclesiastes 1:6 (King James Version)
The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
- The wind
- This verse should be connected with the preceding, and rendered, "The sun also riseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose; going toward the south, and turning about unto the north. The wind whirleth about continually," etc. Alluding, in the former part, to the apparent daily motion of the sun from east to west, and to his annual course through the signs of the zodiac.
