20 All go to one place, and all was of the dust, and all shall return to the dust.
21 Who [a]knoweth whether the spirit of man ascend upward, and the spirit of the beast descend downward to the earth?
22 Therefore I see that there is nothing better than that a man should [b]rejoice in his affairs, because that is his portion. For who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
Ecclesiastes 3:21Meaning, that reason cannot comprehend that which faith believeth herein.
Ecclesiastes 3:22By the often repetition of this sentence, as Eccl. 2:24; 3:12, 22; 5:17 and 8:15, he declareth that man by reason can comprehend nothing better in this life, than to use the gifts of God soberly and comfortably: for to know further, is a special gift of God revealed by his Spirit.
