What is that which hath been? already is its name called, and it is known that it is man, and he is not able to contend with him who is stronger than he.
Ecclesiastes 6:10 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
That which hath been is named already - The Hebrew of this verse might be translated, "Who is he who is? His name has been already called. And it is known that he is Adam; and that he cannot contend in judgment with him who is stronger than he."
"What is more excellent than man; yet can he not, in the lawe, get the victory of him that is mightier than he." - Coverdale.
Adam is his name; and it at once points out,
1. His dignity; he was made in the image of God.
2. His fall; he sinned against his Maker and was cast out of Paradise. And
3. His recovery by Christ; the second man (Adam) was the Lord from heaven, and a quickening Spirit.
