Beginning in Chapter 7, the Preacher begins using the medium of proverb to provide us with his observations and continued attempts to determine the good (“tob”) in life. He addresses prosperity and adversity, wickedness and righteousness, wisdom and folly, only to conclude that the nature of existence is so remote or distant from our understanding that it is essentially unsearchable. But our Preacher’s quest does not stop there! He has a confirmed commitment to see his quest through to the end.
