To Gail Neal. I don`t think Ecclesiastes talks about the restoration, there is only one Prince, our Savior. Here are some interesting verses:

Acts 3:18 But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. 19 REPENT therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before,[a] 21 whom heaven must receive until the times of RESTORATION of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.

Revelation 21 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John,[a] saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

Isaiah 1:25-27. 2:1-5. 4:2-6. 11:11-13, ch 25. 26:1,2,12-19. 27:13. 29:18-24. 30:18-26. 32:15-20. 33:13-24. ch 35. 37:31,32. 40:2,9. 41:27. ch 44. 49:13-23. ch 51. 52:1-12. ch 60. 61:4-9. ch 62. 66:5-22.
Jeremiah 3:14-18. 4:3-18. 12:14-16. 23:3. 24:1-7. 29:1-14. 30:3-22. 32:36-44. ch 33. 44:28.
Ezekiel 14:22,23. 16:60-63. 20:40,41. 36:1-38. 37:12,21.
Daniel 11:30-45. 12:1, Joel ch 3, Amos 9:9-15, Obadiah 17-21, Micah 2:12,13. 5:3. Zephaniah 2:7, Zechariah 1:14-21. ch 2. ch 8. 10:5-12. 12:1. ch 13. ch 14.
Malachi 3:4, Romans ch 11, 2 Cor. 3:16

And Revelation, Epistles of Paul are important, Jude and 2 Peter. And many other places, actually read the whole Bible in context with concordance and greek- english lexicon because there are many mistranslations and misunderstandings, making the Scriptures contradict itself. But God isn`t a liar. Praise Yahweh!

I am really interested in the Scripture that proclaims the restoration of the Princes to their rightful place & making things the way God intended them to be. If anyone can assist me in locating these verses that translate HOPE to us in the end time...I will be extremely grateful. I have searched, but have not had the success I have hoped for so I decided to use this medium to get some assistance. Thaaaank anyone that happens to find them, in advance. God bless you also!
