The Conclusion of the Matter

King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, concluded the book of Ecclesiastes in chapter 12, verses 13 and 14 with these words that fall under the heading of “The Conclusion of the Matter”:

 13. Now all has been heard;
       here is the conclusion of the matter:
       Fear God and keep his commandments,
       for this is the whole duty of man.

 14. For God will bring every deed into judgment,
       including every hidden thing,
       whether it is good or evil.

Nothing else in life matters.  Everything is as a vapor.  Everything else is meaningless.  All is vanity.
