Synopsis
Title of the Book. The book is called in the Hebrew Koheleth, a title taken from its opening sentence, The words of Koheleth, the son of David, King in Jerusalem. In the Greek and Latin Versions it is entitled Ecclesiastes, which Jerome elucidates by remarking that in Greek a person is so called who gathers the congregation, or ecclesia.

The feminine form is by some accounted for, not by supposing Koheleth to represent an oflB.oe, and therefore as used abstractedly, but as being the personification of Wisdom, whose business it is to gather people unto the Lord and make them a holy congregation.
