Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ecclesiastes 5:10

_ _ Not only will God punish at last, but meanwhile the oppressive gainers of “silver” find no solid “satisfaction” in it.

_ _ shall not be satisfied — so the oppressor “eateth his own flesh” (see on Ecclesiastes 4:1 and see on Ecclesiastes 4:5).

_ _ with increase — is not satisfied with the gain that he makes.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ecclesiastes 5:9-17.
