Qohelet vi 1-2, rather difficult to understand, tells the story of a man who can not use his belongings, although he wants to. A general first reading helps us to relate this text to other ones about the free work (work without benefits), and underlines its place in the book, just beside the fourth chorus about the happiness. A second reading shows us two key words used by Qohelet : the « glory » which suggests that there is more than the work, and the fact that God does not « allow » the man to enjoy his belongings. Consequently, one is able to find some explanations using the opposition between luxurious pleasure and honest joy.
