Ecclesiastes also tells us that everything is “hebele” futility.

While I have had disappointments in life, life has been anything but

Some claim that this was written late in life, when Solomon was in his
apostasy. I see no reason to disagree. As such it is included in Tanakh to
show the futility of life without God, not as a trustworthy guide to true
understanding of God’s ways. And that will include what will happen in $)WL.
