The same fate comes to all. A living dog is better than a dead lion. Enjoy the days of your vain life. Wisdom is better than strength.

A somewhat depressing chapter...the same fate coming to everyone .... Yet it is good to remember that we do not measure Godís "fate for us" by what happens in life. We measure Godís "fate for us" by what Jesus did at the cross.

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.
