Ecclesiastes 2:21

For there is a man whose labor is in wisdom, and in knowledge, and in equity; yet to a man that has not labored in it shall he leave it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil.

AD 1849

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
