    time and procedure for every purpose, although the misery of man is heavy on him.

    There is a
    time and opportunity for every business, and great affliction for man:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:6

    ¶ Porque para toda voluntad hay tiempo y juicio; porque el mal del hombre es grande sobre l;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ecclesiastes 8:6

    Verse 6. To every purpose there is
    time - pj chaphets, every volition, every thing that depends on the will of man. He has generally the opportunity to do whatever he purposes; and as his purposes are frequently evil, his acts are so too: and in consequence his misery is great.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. Because to every purpose there is
    time and judgment , etc.] There is a fit season, and a right and proper manner of doing everything that is to be done; (see Ecclesiastes 3:1-8); which a wise man discerns; and which when a man hits upon, it prevents a great deal of mischief, which for want of it comes upon men, as the following clause shows; some refer this to the punishment of the wicked, and to a future judgment. So the Targum, to every business there is a time good and evil, and according to the judgment of truth the whole world is judged; and to the same purpose Jarchi, there is a time fixed for the visitation of the wicked, and there is judgment before the Lord; this is vengeance or punishment; therefore the misery of man [is] great upon him ; he not observing the right time and manner of doing what he ought, brings much trouble upon himself; his days are few and full trouble, and every day has a sufficiency of evil in because of the evil of sin, the evil of misery presses upon him, and is a heavy burden on him Jarchis note is, when the wickedness of a man is great, then cometh his visitation.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Commendations of
    wisdom. (Eccl. 8:1-5) To prepare for sudden evils an death. (Eccl. 8:6-8) It shall be well with the righteous, and ill with the wicked. (Eccl. 8:9-13) Mysteries of Providence. (Eccl. 8:14-17)

    Eccl. 8:1-5 None of the rich, the powerful, the honourable, or the accomplished of the sons of men, are so excellent, useful, or happy, a the wise man. Who else can interpret the words of God, or teach arigh from his truths and dispensations? What madness must it be for weak an dependent creatures to rebel against the Almighty! What numbers for wrong judgments, and bring misery on themselves, in this life and tha to come!

    Eccl. 8:6-8 God has, in wisdom, kept away from us the knowledge of future events, that we may be always ready for changes. We must all die, no flight or hiding-place can save us, nor are there any weapon of effectual resistance. Ninety thousand die every day, upwards of sixty every minute, and one every moment. How solemn the thought! O that men were wise, that they understood these things, that they woul consider their latter end! The believer alone is prepared to meet the solemn summons. Wickedness, by which men often escape human justice cannot secure from death.

    Eccl. 8:9-13 Solomon observed, that many a time one man rules ove another to his hurt, and that prosperity hardens them in their wickedness. Sinners herein deceive themselves. Vengeance comes slowly but it comes surely. A good man's days have some substance; he lives to a good purpose: a wicked man's days are all as a shadow, empty an worthless. Let us pray that we may view eternal things as near, real and all-important.

    Eccl. 8:14-17 Faith alone can establish the heart in this mixed scene where the righteous often suffer, and the wicked prosper. Solomo commended joy, and holy security of mind, arising from confidence i God, because a man has no better thing under the sun, though a good ma has much better things above the sun, than soberly and thankfully to use the things of this life according to his rank. He would not have u try to give a reason for what God does. But, leaving the Lord to clea up all difficulties in his own time, we may cheerfully enjoy the comforts, and bear up under the trials of life; while peace of conscience and joy in the Holy Ghost will abide in us through all outward changes, and when flesh and heart shall fail __________________________________________________________________
