There is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

Bible Verse:
“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
Origin and Application:
You may have already heard this popular saying, but do you know who created this inspiring quote? It is written by King Solomon, a wise king in Israel who was the son of King David. In his later years, he composed a lot of wise sayings which were included in the Bible as Proverbs and Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament. King Solomon got his fame for two things – wisdom and women. In his time there were no kings who could rival his wisdom, which brought him gold and silver offerings from kings in the neighbouring countries who wished to seek his wisdom. He also loved many foreign women who worshipped foreign gods. As he approached his old age, with all the riches he had seen and vicissitudes he had been through, he made this famous quote which became widely circulated generations after generations, that “there is nothing new under the sun.”
