Solomon proves that we ought to make use of what God has given us, by showing the mutability of all human affairs, Ecclesiastes 3:1-10. The immutability and unsearchableness of the divine counsels, Ecclesiastes 3:11-15. The vanity of honour and power, often an instrument of oppression, for which God will judge the oppressors, Ecclesiastes 3:16; Ecclesiastes 3:17; whose condition in this world is no better than that of brutes, Ecclesiastes 3:18-21. Therefore live well, Ecclesiastes 3:22.
