Ecclesiastes 1:3 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
Now begins the finale of this song in praise of the virtuous woman:
28 ק Her sons rise up and bless her,
Her husband (riseth up) and praiseth her.
The Piel אשּׁר in such a connection is denom. of אשׁר (אשׁרי). Her children rise up (קוּם, like e.g., Jeremiah 26:17, but here, perhaps, with the associated idea of reverential honour) and bless her, that she has on her part brought the house and them to such prosperity, such a position of respect, and to a state where love (חסד) reigns, and her husband rises up and sings her praise.

1 Corinthians 16:16
be subject to such as these, and to every fellow worker and laborer.
Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was nothing to be gained under the sun.
I hated all my toil in which I toil under the sun, seeing that I must leave it to the man who will come after me,
What has a man from all the toil and striving of heart with which he toils beneath the sun?
What gain has the worker from his toil?
This also is a grievous evil: just as he came, so shall he go, and what gain is there to him who toils for the wind?
