From time to time I like to throw out a riddle or some kind of trivia. So here we go. I was reading in 1Kings and the end of chapter 6, and beginning of chapter 7 tells us that Solomon spent 7 years building the temple, and 13 years building his own house. How grand Solomons house must have been. I found in Ecclesiastes where Solomon makes a brief comment about what might be considered today as the "master bedroom/bathroom". What is it, and where? See if you can find it.

NKJV & KJV

I think I found it...

Is it in Eccl. 10:20? I looked at the hint before I started looking, though.

I'll have to give "anonymous" for going at it. although I said a brief comment about it, maybe I should have said a brief description about the "Master Bed/ Bath. Eccl 10:20 mentions it, but it does not describe it.

It wouldn't have to do with a vanity of all vanities, would it?

Ecclesiastes 10:20

"...nor in your bedchamber curse the rich"

I didn't look at the hint.

Thanks for the exercise. :-)

I have read the comments on both posts. I think it is Eccl. 2:10-11.
The what is it is, that we are told he had everything he desired and labored for. Yet indeed all was vanity.

Ok, So if you look at the hint is says, If you think to hard or dig to deep you'll miss it. If you think to hard you will not see the joke in it, and if you dig to deep, as in past Chapter 1:1 you'll miss it. Vanities of vanities it is! I'm am impressed with how everyone participated. Thanks!
