Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the crisis of religious faith in Kohelet. Thought content of the book of Kohelet explains conditionalities of the milieus: the book is recognizable either in the Greek or Oriental influence. In this way the assessment can hardly come to a final decision, because the real problem and living Ecclesiastes eludes so external and straightforward interpretation. It is in relation to mainly a structural property of the personality and a certain mode of behavior of religion. The ancient Israelite conception of life is a religious harmony between the inner and outer events if the soul of man is safe and accessible. The adequate correlation between the religious and moral and physical-material events is based on the fact that the Lord is righteous and maintains righteousness.

Keywords: religious faith; Kohelet; ancient Israelite conception; religious harmony
