Abstract It is suggested that in Qoh 4:1 the relatively minor emendation of נַעֲשִׂים into עֲנשִים “punished“ and כֹּחַ into מַכָּה “blow“ results in a more cogent and balanced text, and eliminates the problems that were encountered by commentators of the MT. With these emendations, it is natural to understand both as the concrete הָעֲשקִים “oppressed“.
