Vanity is the key word of … Cultivate as much as possible your thinking powers. The winds of circumstance may float and scatter the thistledown of sin; but the hand of intelligence and piety must sow the seed of truth. 2 Often we fall into the temptation of not giving as we should, because we want to have enough saved up for ourselves, if something bad happens to us. 3. "[5] Fleming agreed that, "It refers to business ventures overseas trade. Now, if there is one thing which our religion ought to teach us, it is this spirit I have been trying to show the need of--of living not just for to-day, but for days to come, of casting one’s bread upon the waters--the spirit of patient, thoughtful permanence in life and doings. The most popular explanation of Ecclesiastes 11:1 is, that the figure is taken from the casting of seed on irrigated lands, as, for instance, in Egypt before the waters of the Nile have subsided; and that the duty of beneficence is here inculcated. The “bread” passes from sight and reach swiftly, and apparently beyond recovery, like our hard tack not soaking and falling apart readily, and may be sometimes recovered far down the stream. And we call this the extreme supposition, because we believe that ordinarily where God has prompted to exertion and to sacrifice He crowns them with some measure of success, though He may not always allow that success to be known. The ship we send forth with trembling, that is never reported from any foreign port, that is never spoken with by a passing sail, that sends no message in sealed bottle on the waves, that is frozen fast in abysses of frost and darkness, shall nevertheless return, bringing treasure beyond all ivory, pearls, or gold. So you must be content to wait for it with patience, as the husbandman doth for the fruits of the earth. You had better sow every year. There is more than a hint in these verses that the benevolent treatment of others by God-fearing people, while we have the ability to do it, might, at some unknown time in the future, be, even for us, the means of our survival. You see illustrations of this in every direction. The Targum is, "reach out the bread of thy sustenance to the poor that go in ships upon the thee of the water;'. The building of a house was a serious business in our grandfathers’ time. The merchant sent his ship over the waters, he lost sight of it altogether, and in those days the quickest passage on record was unknown. This verse is a warning against procrastination. And we can bear witness to the truth of the prophet’s observation: for in many places, and on many hearts, where there has been as little prospect of success as could well be conceived, God has given efficacy to the word of his grace; and the handful of corn sown upon the top of the mountains has sprung up, so that the fruit thereof has shaken like the woods of Lebanon; and those of the city where it has been cast have flourished like the piles of grass upon the earth [Note: Psalms 72:16. “Let thy bread go forth over the watery mirror: for in the course of many days shalt thou find it.” Most interpreters, chiefly the Talm., Midrash, and Targ., (Note: The Midrash tells the following story: Rabbi Akiba sees a ship wrecked which carried in it one learned in the law. “Though one cast his bread upon the surface of a stream, he may, though long after, find it again.” That is, an investment, whether of toil, of benevolent giving, or good doing, which shows little promise of being remunerative, may in the end prove extremely advantageous. Why does “the law” stand in that noble emphasis at the beginning of the Hebrew religion? What whale, he asked him, has vomited thee out upon dry land? Late or soon it is sure to come to all who are earnest and unselfish. There is a sustained theme of exhortation to hold wholeheartedly to the faith and to decisive commitment to obedience to God, regardless of whether life is adverse or comfortable. ]?”], [The good Samaritan shews us how we ought to exercise generosity, even towards those who, by reason of particular differences and distinctions, may appear to be most remote from us [Note: Luke 10:33-37.]. It seems to me that it is not houses only, but the whole fabric of society which is being built up thus flimsily and temporarily. Useless, fruitless, we might have said many a time and oft. If clouds are full of water, they pour rain upon the earth. Parallel in point of significance are the following passages:—Psalms 41:1-2, "Blessed is he who acts prudently towards the wretched: in the day of adversity shall the Lord deliver him. The one strikes the axe at the roots of evil; the other sows the seeds of good. Invest in Many Ventures - Ship your grain across the sea; after many days you may receive a return. “Thou shalt find it.” “A good man,” says Carlyle, “is ever a creative mystic centre of goodness. Amos 6:12.). Buchanan, Ecclesiastes: its Meaning and Lessons, p. 391; T. C. Finlayson, A Practical Exposition of Ecclesiastes p. 239. Into this box or basket, if thou cast but bread (so it be thy bread), brown bread, such as thou hast, and then wait for the Lord, when he will return from the wedding with a full hand, thou shalt be fed supernae mensae copiosis deliciis, as one saith, with the abundant dainties of the heavenly table. Meaningless!” says the Teacher. For the sake of doing good we should deny ourselves. The prospect of evil has always been a motive for exertion to good men. This prepares us for the precept next following. Wherefore, if thou hast of thine own, give; if not, better for thee to gratify none than to grate upon any, saith Augustine. Remember that you all, without exception, have it in your power still more largely to promote this good work. ‘Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.’. Ecclesiastes 10 Ecclesiastes 11:1 Ecclesiastes 12 Return to the Main Player Favoriting is a great way to keep a list of sermons, programs, and ministry resources in your account.

(Worthington), "Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, for you will find it after many days.". It is only "after many days"—"in due season," as St. Paul expresses the same thought—that we shall reap if we faint not. 4. “Thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.” Covetousness would turn this to another use: “We know not what we shall want; we must every one look to himself.” No! But the prudent husbandman knows, that in time of drought the clouds are filling, and that as soon as they are full they must pour down rain upon the earth (Ecclesiastes 11:3. [Note: Ibid, p1189. Similar admonitions to give to the poor abound in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Again, in your benevolence, in your readiness to help a partner or a client, or even to do a good turn to a poor neighbour, do not be calculating just whether you must do it or whether you must not. I. We should aim to look to the right quarter for success. It is a seed that will germinate, multiply. The secret of Dr. Arnold’s ascendency as a teacher was the love that charmed his pupils into friends. "If the clouds be full of rain, they empty [themselves] upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the … 2. Is it not so also in business? Thereupon Akiba thought of the proverb in Ecclesiastes 11:1. "[7] All such views of this passage are absolutely ridiculous and should be rejected out of hand. (1) We must aim to sow the right seed. The scope of this verse is hypothetical, or of a supposed case. It is not best for our spiritual life that we should always get immediate returns for our labours. 1. 1. Divan, compared by Herzfeld. American King James Version × this applies in business and in all areas of life. All tourists love to tell of the cataract of Niagara, of its thunder, foam and rainbows; but, after all, cataracts like Niagara do little for the fertility of the world. But to the children themselves the benefits are incalculably great. 3. But to cast one's bread upon the surface of the waters, where it must be either devoured by the fish, or diluted to nothing, before the waves leave it upon the shore, would be a very odd way of providing for futurity; and I doubt whether one who would try the experiment could find his bread again after many days. Ecclesiastes 11:1. His every effort is an embodiment of a living conviction. It must pass through the action of some kind of mental chemistry; it must mix with other influences; it must long unfurl and ramify in mystery and silence: and you are not to faint because you are unable to reap in sowing-time. Every gain of time has been used up right away m new wants--none of it saved for those quieter uses and higher uses which would be the seed of a nobler, fuller future. "The idea is that just as the ship returns to reward the one who sent it forth, so God will restore generously the one who demonstrates compassion upon others" (Kidwell p. 263). A. These six verses are, "The first remedy proposed by the author for the perplexities of life,"[1] a life which he has repeatedly called "vanity of vanities." But the case is quite otherwise with respect to seed thrown upon the surface of an inundation: When the waters subside, the corn which remains in the mud grows, and is found again many days after, at the time of harvest. From the uncertainty of the results of human effort, he infers that we ought the more diligently to make trial of varied forms of exertion, in order that this or that may succeed. A large and liberal benevolence is enjoined upon us. So what able men try to do is to make the utmost possible for a few years; and, to do this, there cannot be much sparing of bread-corn to cast on the waters, not much restraint in the use of opportunity. “Utterly meaningless! (C. Stanford, D. D.). With the design and scope of the place, which is to persuade men to be liberal and charitable, notwithstanding the discouragements which they meet with in so doing, of which see the next clause, and the next verse. What an amount has been spent on that cause in the course of the ages! 1 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. (Note: The Greek phrase σπείρειν πόντον, “to sow the sea” = to undertake a fruitless work, is of an altogether different character; cf. Upon the waters.] Ecc 11:2 Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth. Ecclesiastes 11 1 Be generous: Invest in acts of charity. The doctrine of stewardship is peculiar to our religion. A motive drawn from the consideration of human mortality. III. The minister who has been oppressed up to his dying hour by the melancholy conviction that his warnings, his entreaties, his expostulations, have been lost on his congregation, may be hailed by many, as the instrument of their conversion. This is a very rational construction of Solomon's words, which the judicious Bishop Lowth, in his 10th Prelection, thinks may be illustrated from Psalms 104:14. Même aux moins vertueux ne les refusez pas. — This metaphor is to be explained from the form of eastern loaves, which from all time have been thin and flat, and float off like shingles on a stream. We are to sow our benefits broadcast, and be assured we shall have a harvest of reward. Or, "upon the waters," i.e., upon such as being hunger bitten, or hardly bestead, do water their plants, being fed "with bread of tears."

An Aram. What an amount of sacrifice made and suffering borne and loving labour endured! ), There are in this book aspects of truth that we are very apt to forget, an emphasis put upon certain out-of-the-way duties that are as essential to a proper, natural, and religious life as those doctrines and principles that we bring to the forefront of our evangelical preaching. And Jesus said that the giver even of a cup of cold water in His name should not be without his reward. "Cast thy bread upon the waters, etc." We should make unceasing search for this till we find it, and be anxious not to fall into a mistake with reference to such a primary condition of success. God never loses sight of our “work of faith.”, 2. Holy Bible, New International Version®, NIV® Copyright ©1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica, Inc.® Used by permission. It may well be spoken humbly, cautiously, reluctantly, gently; if not, it will lose its influence, and will be wrong in you. EcclesiastesChapter 11. But, at the same time, by speaking of “many days,” it warns us alike against impatience and despondency. (Homilist. In commerce, too, it is exemplified: a man invests in land or in bonds which have no present market value; but his business sagacity tells him they will have in the course of years, and if he himself may not benefit by the venture, his son will. The apostles, in the midst of their great and Successful exertions, prophesied a fatal apostasy. is written in these verses, Solomon admonishes us to sow our seed, morning and evening; and this is not speaking of a farming venture, but, "It speaks of the acts of kindness and benevolence that we have opportunity to do. When the waters receded, the grain in the alluvial soil sprang up (Isaiah 32:20). ], and not suffering “even a cup of cold water to be left without its appropriate reward [Note: Matthew 10:42. Notice the phrase, "after many days". Hitzig's explanation: Throw thy bread into the water = venture thy hope, is forced; and of the same character are all the attempts to understand the word of agricultural pursuits; e.g., by van der Palm: sementem fac muxta aquas (or: in loca irrigua ); Grätz even translates: “Throw thy corn on the surface of the water,” and understands this, with the fancy of a Martial, of begetting children. You see it in trade and the various material arts of life. Now it is true that a lot of corrupt translations and paraphrases are available; but all of them put together do not have one tenth of the authority of the three standard versions of the Holy Bible just cited. 1. Some motives to the exercise of benevolence. In view of all that. That instead of “into the water (the sea)” of these or similar proverbs, Koheleth uses here the expression, “on the face of ( על־פּני ) the waters,” makes no difference: Eastern bread has for the most part the form of cakes, and is thin (especially such as is prepared hastily for guests, 'ughoth or matstsoth, Genesis 18:6; Genesis 19:3); so that when thrown into the water, it remains on the surface (like a chip of wood, Hosea 10:7), and is carried away by the stream. The image is borrowed from sea-trading. The great mysteries of life are beyond our comprehension. The waters — Freely and liberally bestow it upon the waters; upon those poor creatures, on whom it may seem to be as utterly lost, as the seed which a man casts into the sea or river. (2) A second reference in the charge is to the sowing: "Cast" the seed. Something to last, there! The idea seems to be that our good deeds will eventually come back to us, what we sow we will eventually reap (Revelation 14:13). The great thing there is to follow the Divine leading, and to sow even though it be in tears, trusting Him, who gives the command, that all will be well, and that in His own good time there shall come a reaping time of joy. I think the commonest and chief cause is that we do good upon impulse, not upon principle. 1. God never led you to expect that a few hours’ or a few days’ anxiety would set at rest for ever your prospect of salvation. Solomon having discovered divers vanities, and amongst others the vanity of heaping up riches, he now teacheth us that it is our interest as well as duty, not so much to lay them up, as to lay them out in pious and charitable uses; and having taught us the true and best use of worldly things, for our present comfort and benefit, which is to enjoy them with a cheerful and contented mind, he now directs us to the best improvement of them, for our future and greater advantage; and having acquainted us with our duty towards our superiors, he now directs us in our carriage towards our inferiors, and especially to such of them as are poor. So the Targum, "for after the time of many days, then thou shall find the reward of it in this world (so it is in the king's Bible), and in the world to come;'. after many days you may receive a return. (1) Its first reference is to seed, for this is what is meant by "bread." IV. As the wise man had often suggested that nothing was better for a man than to enjoy the good of his labour himself, he here advises to let others, the poor, have a share with him; and as he had directed in the preceding chapter how men should behave towards their superiors, he here instructs them what notice they should take of their inferiors; and as he had … Ecclesiastes 11:4. Yes; there is a looking at that part and side of the world that is out of our control, that God holds in His own hands, that paralyzes human endeavour; and the Book of Ecclesiastes warns us, as men of the world, as men of religion, against concerning ourselves with God’s share in the transaction. 2 Don’t hoard your goods; spread them around. Inevitably remunerative. It supplies moral bread for the world. (Ecclesiastes 11:1). Nothing more easy than to stir men and women to start well in life; the job is to keep them going on. We should aim at the best way of teaching. Solomon advises us to get moving because the good things God has to offer will not come to those who waiver (James 1:6-8).

But we must hope in hopeless work, or what to the carnal eye looks like hopeless work. Death Comes to All. “Waters” express multitudes, so Ecclesiastes 11:2; Revelation 17:15; also the seemingly hopeless character of the recipients of the charity; but it shall prove at last to have been not thrown away (Isaiah 49:4). Do not procrastinate—plunge in! The book contains philosophical speeches by a character called '(the) Qoheleth' ("the Teacher"), composed probably between 5th to 2nd century BCE. And parents who have had to struggle with that heaviest of trials, the ungodliness of children, and who have not had the least ground to hope that their remonstrances and tears and prayers have wrought any effect upon their reprobate offspring, they may be met hereafter by the sons or the daughters whose contempt of religion entered as iron into their souls, but into whose hearts their admonition had sunk notwithstanding the apparent insensibility. But now--well, to begin with, there is not the same desire to have a house; there is not the same idea of living steadily on in one place. There is nothing more fatiguing and wearisome than being good. I. 2. Some years you will lose, but at the end, when your life is done, you will have made a large gain, a great profit. Looking beyond what can be seen. proverb from Diez' Denkwürdigkeiten von Asien (Souvenirs of Asia), II 106: “Do good; cast thy bread into the water: thou shalt be repaid some day.” See also the proverb in Goethe's Westöst. Or, lastly, "upon the waters," i.e., in loca irrigua, upon grounds well watered - moist and fertile soil, such as is that by the river Nile, where they do but throw in the seed, and they have four rich harvests in less than four months; (f) or as that in the land of Shinar (where Babel was founded, Genesis 11:1-9), that returns, if Herodotus and Pliny may be believed, the seed beyond credulity. We cannot but have seen, times without number, what depraved habits are contracted by the children of the poor when playing about the streets or lanes of a town without control. II. 30. Barton also noted that by far the most probably correct understanding of this place views it as, "An exhortation to liberality," pointing out the ancient Arabic proverb upon which the metaphorical words of the text are founded."[9]. But such an ambition involves some foregoing of present advantage; and that is where modern life is so weak. And it should lead us, in every case in which there seems to be no result from our labours, to examine whether we have faithfully complied with its precept; whether there have been diligence in casting the bread; and whether it has really been bread that we have east. It probably refers to buying and selling. Ecclesiastes 1 is the first chapter of the Book of Ecclesiastes in the Hebrew Bible or the Old Testament of the Christian Bible.
