"God has laid a miserable fate upon us. I have seen everything done in this world, and I tell you, it is all useless. It is like chasing the wind" (1:14,15).
This is just one of many difficult verses in this book. For example, is there really a time to hate and a time to kill?
Is it true that "Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there's no use arguing with God about your destiny" (6:10).

Song of Solomon is one of the most controversial books in the Bible with a wide variety of different interpretations. Is this story an allegory that poetically describes God's love for his people or is this primarily a story of the passion between two lovers?
"The literal interpretation of the Song of Solomon has been rejected many times by both Jewish and Christian interpreters. The reason given for not considering the book a love song is the feeling that a sacred book should not be about the passion and joys of love between a man and a women...because of its explicit language, ancient and modern Jewish sages forbade men to read the book before they were thirty (and presumably kept women from reading it at all)." - Nelson Study Bible Commentary

What wisdom is revealed in the books of Proverbs and Song of Songs? Is there any foolishness revealed in Ecclesiastes? What does all of this say about God?
