Dream Desire Satisfaction

Dream - Desire in Ecclesiastes


Desire

 

Ecclesiastes 2:10 And whatsoever my eyes desired I did not keep from them; I did not withhold my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced because of all my labor, and this was my portion from all my labor.

Ecclesiastes 6:2  a man to whom God gives riches, wealth, and honor, so that he lacks nothing for his soul of all that he desires, yet God does not give him power to eat thereof, but an alien eats it; this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.

Ecclesiastes 6:9  Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the desire: this also is vanity and a striving after wind.

Ecclesiastes 12:5 yes, they shall be afraid of that which is high, and terrors shall be in the way, and the almond-tree shall blossom, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail; because man goes to his everlasting home, and the mourners go about the streets:

12:6  before the silver cord is loosed, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher is broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern,

12:7  and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

 

Satisfaction

 

Ecclesiastes 1:8  All things are full of weariness; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

Ecclesiastes 4:8  There is one that is alone, and he has not a second; yes, he has neither son nor brother; yet is there no end of all his labor, neither are his eyes satisfied with riches.  “For whom then,”  he said, “do I labor, and deprive my soul of good?”  This also is vanity, yes, it is a sore travail.

Ecclesiastes 5:10 He that  loves silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that  loves abundance, with increase: this also is vanity.

 

Dream

 

Ecclesiastes 5:3  For a dream comes with a multitude of business, and a fool's voice with a multitude of words.

Ecclesiastes 5:7  For in the multitude of dreams there are vanities, and in many words: but fear you God.
