The "high official" in Ecclesiastes 5:8 is likely referring to human rulers rather than implying divine authority, according to a comprehensive linguistic and contextual analysis. Despite the absence of specific divine indicators, the article acknowledges the relevance of divine oversight in human affairs, while asserting the verse primarily reflects real-world dynamics of human governance and justice.
The post discusses Apostle Paul's statement in Galatians 2:19, "For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God". It explains that adherence to the law made Paul aware of the impossibility of achieving righteousness solely through human effort. Instead, faith in Jesus Christ transcends the law's limitations and provides true righteousness. Thus, the law serves to guide us towards faith, not to attain righteousness independently.
