comment What did God put into the heart of man according to the LXX in Ecclesiastes 3:11?
ya this question arose because i have a few Hebrew explanation sources and even reliable sources went for different translation which made me curious about the LXX as an older translation which my Hebrew sources did not refer to.

comment What does the author of Ecclesiastes Chapter 2 mean that 'his heart was still guided with wisdom' as he went about doing foolish things?
thanks for the in-depth answer. i enjoy having a window into ancient views, however in this case I can't accept as I am not convinced Solomon saw that the wisdom that guided him he saw as folly...but he saw the wisdom as wisdom...preserving him in some important way inwardly from an uncritical abandon into the flesh.

I see where these old guys are going with it, and it does come close to what I am also thinking but the wisdom seems to be a positive thing that in some ways prevented from truly being a slave to his flesh and brining him through a journey where he himself wrote scripture with the conclusions....so surely 'wisdom' still guided and stayed with this man not only in his reading but in his thinking and believing. A prodigal might be a believer at the same time?

Are you saying that he got depressed about the lack of value in the meanigless workings of this world (including his own wisdom as compared to say a life of stupid pleasures) ...if so are you saying this knowledge is focused on the 'activities and occurrences of this world', as compared to such things as knowledge of God, or even of non-depressing subjects such as mathematics ?

seems you put a lot of thought into it +1, i think you're right about not directly refering to man's nature but by calling man's activities and meaningless behaviour as crooked ...it's indirectly implied.
