Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ecclesiastes 11:10

_ _ sorrow — that is, the lusts that end in “sorrow,” opposed to “rejoice,” and “heart cheer thee” (Ecclesiastes 11:9), Margin, “anger,” that is, all “ways of thine heart”; “remove,” etc., is thus opposed to “walk in,” etc. (Ecclesiastes 11:9).

_ _ flesh — the bodily organ by which the sensual thoughts of the “heart” are embodied in acts.

_ _ childhood — rather, “boyhood”; the same Hebrew word as the first, “youth” in Ecclesiastes 11:9. A motive for self-restraint; the time is coming when the vigor of youth on which thou reliest, will seem vain, except in so far as it has been given to God (Ecclesiastes 12:1).

_ _ youth — literally, the dawn of thy days.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ecclesiastes 11:7-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ecclesiastes 11:10

Sorrow — Sensual and disorderly lusts, which he elegantly calls sorrow, to intimate, that although such practices at present gratify mens senses, yet they will shortly bring them to intolerable sorrows. Evil — All evil desires, tho' now they seem good to thee. Vanity — Most vain. The time of youth is vanishing and transitory, and old age and death will speedily come, against which every wise man will take care to lay in solid provisions and comforts.
