Dear b-hebrew listers,

Ecc 9:12 -- Literally the Hebrew says: "Moreover, man does not know his
time..........".
I remark that the first seven words in Ecc 9:12 are often understood  -as
shown in several translations-  as "the humans do not know when they will
die".

Do you feel this is a misunderstanding of the text?
What does the Hebrew text really mean?
