Wesley's Notes for Ecclesiastes 1:9

1:9 There is - There is nothing in the world but a continued and tiresome repetition of the same things. The nature and course of the beings and affairs of the world, and the tempers of men, are the same that they ever were and shall ever be; and therefore, because no man ever yet received satisfaction from worldly things, it is vain for any person hereafter to expect it. No new thing - In the nature of things, which might give us hopes of attaining that satisfaction which hitherto things have not afforded.

Jonah Christian.'s comment on 2015-09-03 08:37:48:

History repeat itself. The world is an algorithm which can only be changed by our actions or decision we make or made. The writer is simply telling us everything under the sun has an origin.Anything new originated from existing object or substance

 

Emmanuel Baah Adutwum's comment on 2015-08-27 22:13:43:

There is no new thing under the sun. What has happened or occuring in your life has occured before. What we are seeing today was there already. eg. Artificial insemination. Joseph did not sleep with marry but marry got pregnant. eg2. elevator: Jacob saw angels running to and fro in his dreams. Women crying for children. Hannah did the same thing. Sickness or what a few can be mentioned. Post your problem or something u think is new under the sun let me prove you wrong from the bible

Indeed, the right word misspelled is under. And true, God created man kind to recreate - all human skills are primary, God equipped man from the beginning and imparted into him HIS own wisdom... Nothing is really new even what's looking or seen as new is one that has been implictly into man.

Ecc 1 9 does this scripture mean all things were before like cars cell phones and all things that we see in todays life. were these things before ?

Up above in Ecclesiastes 1:9 from the King James Bible the quote is 'The thing that hath beene, it is that which shall be: and that which is done, is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing vnder the sunne.' I think the word 'vnder' is a misprint and should be 'under' - what do you think?
