Near the end of this chapter, which gives an overview that everything is meaningless we find this little gem...V 26 To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness,
Again, I am reminded to live to please an audience of One.

What do you make of this chapter? What do you think of my summary? How would you summarise it?

I summarised all 1,189 chapters of the Bible on Twitter - one tweet per chapter, one chapter per day for over three years.

These are the summaries of the book of Ecclesiastes.

They are written to help you understand and remember what's going on in the chapter, but they're no substitute for reading the Bible for yourself.
