Abstract :
The author presents the state of research on textual and source criticism concerning Qohelet 5,7-8, and then provides a structural and literary analysis of these verses. He pursues his inquiry showing that the ambiguities of Qohelet 5,7-8 are not purely accidental. On the contrary, these ambiguities are part of a rhetorical strategy that emphasizes the irony of the text and aims at inviting the reader to test various readings.
