Concluding Thoughts about the Teacher
Today's Passage: Ecclesiastes 12:8-14
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.

8. "Everything is meaningless," says the Teacher, "completely meaningless."
9. Keep this in mind: The Teacher was considered wise, and he taught the people everything he knew. He listened carefully to many proverbs, studying and classifying them.
10. The Teacher sought to find just the right words to express truths clearly.
11. The words of the wise are like cattle prods — painful but helpful. Their collected sayings are like a nail-studded stick with which a shepherd drives the sheep.
12. But, my child, let me give you some further advice: Be careful, for writing books is endless, and much study wears you out.
13. That's the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone's duty.
14. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad.
Ecclesiastes 12:8-14 NLT
