    Ec 5:13

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:1

    ¶ Hay otro mal que he visto debajo del cielo, y muy común entre los hombres:

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. There is an
    evil which I have seen under the sun , etc.] The Vulgate Latin version reads it, another evil; but wrongly, for the same is considered as before, the evil of covetousness; which is one of the evil things that come out of the heart of man; is abominable to the Lord, contrary to his nature and will, and a breach of his law, which forbids it, and is the root of all evil; this is an evil under the sun, for there is nothing of this kind above it; and it fell under the observation of Solomon in various instances; and it [is] common among men ; or, “great over men” f143 ; or “over the man”, the covetous man: it spreads itself over them; few were free from it, even so long ago, in those early times, and in such times in which silver was made no account of, and was like stones in Jerusalem, as common as they; and yet the sin of covetousness, of hoarding up money and making no use of it, for a man’s own good, and the good of others, was very rife among men, ( 1 Kings 10:27).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    The
    vanity of riches. Also of long life and flourishing families (Eccl. 6:1-6) The little advantage any one has in outward things (Eccl. 6:7-12)

    Eccl. 6:1-6 A man often has all he needs for outward enjoyment; yet the Lord leaves him so to covetousness or evil dispositions, that he make no good or comfortable use of what he has. By one means or other his possessions come to strangers; this is vanity, and an evil disease. numerous family was a matter of fond desire and of high honour amon the Hebrews; and long life is the desire of mankind in general. Eve with these additions a man may not be able to enjoy his riches, family and life. Such a man, in his passage through life, seems to have bee born for no end or use. And he who has entered on life only for on moment, to quit it the next, has a preferable lot to him who has live long, but only to suffer.

    Eccl. 6:7-12 A little will serve to sustain us comfortably, and a grea deal can do no more. The desires of the soul find nothing in the wealt of the world to give satisfaction. The poor man has comfort as well a the richest, and is under no real disadvantage. We cannot say, Bette is the sight of the eyes than the resting of the soul in God; for it is better to live by faith in things to come, than to live by sense, whic dwells only upon present things. Our lot is appointed. We have what pleases God, and let that please us. The greatest possessions an honours cannot set us above the common events of human life. Seein that the things men pursue on earth increase vanities, what is man the better for his worldly devices? Our life upon earth is to be reckone by days. It is fleeting and uncertain, and with little in it to be fon of, or to be depended on. Let us return to God, trust in his merc through Jesus Christ, and submit to his will. Then soon shall we glid through this vexatious world, and find ourselves in that happy place where there is fulness of joy and pleasures for evermore __________________________________________________________________
