hand of God
2:24 hand of God. It is significant that the writer of Ecclesiastes never uses the name “LORD” (i.e., Jehovah, or Yahweh), the personal, redemptive name of God used so pervasively in the Old Testament. It is always “God” (Hebrew elohim), the name especially identifying Him as the omnipotent Creator. All men, both saved and unsaved, can and should recognize God as their Creator, but only those who are saved can really know Him as their personal Redeemer.
