Abstract A reexamination of the anecdote in Qoh 4:13-16 supports the following understanding: There was a succession of four protagonists: an old but foolish king; youth1, who came forth from prison; youth2, a poor man born in the latter' reign; and youth3, who is not an individual but whichever young man may come next in line. Wisdom is effective but its accomplishments undermined by the fickleness of public favor and memory.
