Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.
These words bring the book of Ecclesiastes to a close. After all that the preacher has been saying, exploring, investigating and debating, how does he summarise his findings: be in awe of God and obey His commands. Lots of people try to ignore this and pretend that God doesn't exist, but it remains clear that everything we have done will come to judgement before Him - the good things and the not so good things. So we should prepare and be ready.
