Daily Meeting Place
Oppression Takes Place Under the Sun
Today's Passage: Ecclesiastes 4:7-12
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Invite God to join you in your reading. Ask Him for wisdom.
If there is anything in your spirit hindering you, confess it now.
He knows it. You are forgiven.
Ask Him to help you embrace that truth to live it out.
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you, Omnipotent God for insight.

1. Again, I observed all the oppression that takes place under the sun. I saw the tears of the oppressed, with no one to comfort them The oppressors have great power, and their victims are helpless.
2. So I concluded that the dead are better off than the living.
3. But the most fortunate of all are those who are not yet born. For they have not seen all the evil that is done under the sun.
4. Then I observed that most people are motivated to success because they envy their neighbors. But this, too, is meaningless — like chasing the wind.
5. "Fools fold their idle hands, leading them to ruin."
6. And yet,
"Better to have one handful with quietness than two handfuls with hard work and chasing the wind."
Ecclesiastes 4:1-6 NLT
