Ecclesiastes 6 – Vanity of wealth and honour

In chapter 6 Solomon observes that ‘all the toil of a man is for his mouth, yet his appetite is not satisfied. This is vanity’. A man to whom God gives wealth, possessions, and honour, so that he lacks nothing of all that he desires, yet God does not give him power to enjoy them, but a stranger enjoys them.
