I'm reading the chapter 12 of Qohelet.
1. In verse 6 >  I wonder why or how the noun "kad" comes without the 
article.
2. In verse 7 > I wonder why the preposition before "ha-arets" is "'al" and 
not 'el'. Preposition "el" seems to me it would be more "logical" than 
"al"... unless the sense is the dust (resulting from corrupted flesh) goes 
down, at the end, onto the surface of the earth...

Are there any good reasons for the lack of article in 6 and the preposition 
"al" --and not "el"--  in 7?
