St. Jerome
Translated, and Edited with a Commentary, by Richard J. Goodrich and David J. D. Miller

No. 66 of Ancient Christian Writers: The Works of the Fathers in Translation

“At its heart, Ecclesiastes is a meditation on the apparent arbitrariness of life in this world. One person is born into great wealth and affluence, while another starves to death on the street. Moreover, there appears to be no correlation between virtue and reward. It would be eminently sensible if those who set their hearts on the pursuit of the good, those who sought the face of God, were richly blessed in this life, while those who did evil were punished. If life worked along these predictable lines, then our paths would be clear. We would be able to see the consequences of our actions and choose blessing or condemnation. [...]The Preacher took up the task of trying to reconcile this tension between divine providence and the apparent randomness of life beneath the sun.”
—“Introduction: Jerome’s Ecclesiastes”
