Ecclesiastes Summary. The Book of Ecclesiastes doesn't seem to have much of a pattern to it. But there are a few things that hold it together. The first half of the book describes the Preacher's investigations into wisdom (and folly and madness) and how he found that most things boiled down to "vanity"—they were empty, without purpose or lasting reality.

Ecclesiasticus, more properly known as The Wisdom of Sirach, is one of those books. Though it was well-known and widely read in New Testament times, it was not always viewed on a par with other Old Testament books.

The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. The book of Ecclesiastes provides a stark example of how relevant the Old Testament can be in today's world.

17 Weep bitterly, beat your breast, observe the mourning the dead deserves for a day or two, to avoid censorious comment, and then be comforted in your sorrow. 18 for grief can lead to death, a grief-stricken heart loses all energy.
