  1. The latter part of verse 8, “for one official is eyed by a higher one, and over them both are others higher still,” brings Jesus words to mind in Mark 10:42,43, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you.” Jesus is telling His disciples how things are “under the sun,” but then says that is not how it is in His Kingdom “in the Son.” Solomon’s main point isn’t the same as Jesus’, but the same situation on earth is being contrasted with God’s ways.
