    King James Bible - Ecclesiastes 8:7

    For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?

    World English Bible

    For he doesn't know that which will be; for who can tell him how it will be?

    Douay-Rheims - Ecclesiastes 8:7

    Because he is ignorant of things past, and things to come he cannot know by any
    messenger.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?

    Original Hebrew

    כי
    3588 איננו 369 ידע 3045 מה 4100 שׁיהיה 1961 כי 3588 כאשׁר 834 יהיה 1961 מי 4310 יגיד׃ 5046

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:7

    porque no sabe lo que será; ni cuándo haya de ser, ¿quién se lo enseñará?

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. For he knoweth not that which shall be , etc.] Or that “it shall be” f198 ; that he ever shall have the opportunity again he has lost, nor what is to come hereafter; what shall be on the morrow, or what shall
    befall him in the remaining part of his days; what troubles and sorrows he shall meet with, or what will be the case and circumstances of his family after his death; for who can tell him when it shall be ? or “how it shall be” f199 ? how it will be with him or his; no one that pretends to judicial astrology, or to the art of divination, or any such devices, can tell him what is to come; future things are only certainly known by God; none but he can tell what will certainly come to pass; (see Ecclesiastes 3:22 6:12); Jarchi interprets it of a man’s not considering for what God will bring him to judgment, and that no man can tell him the vengeance and punishment that will be inflicted.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
