Chapter 1

The words of David’s son, Qoheleth, king in Jerusalem:[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 1:1 David’s son…king in Jerusalem: the intent of the author is to identify himself with Solomon. This is a literary device, by which the author hopes to commend his work to the public under the name of Israel’s most famous sage (see 1 Kgs 5:9–14).
