Ecclesiastes 2:24

There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labor. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.
Read Chapter 2

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Drink, using with moderation the things which we have acquired, rather than to be solicitous for more, (Worthington) which may fall into the hands of an idle heir, who is appointed by God, ver. 26. This may also be the plea of libertines, (Calmet) who would use freely what he has given. (St. Augustine, contra Jul. iv. 3.)

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