King Solomon uses the word “vanity” 37 times in Ecclesiastes, beginning with verse 2 where he uses it five times, emphasizing this original Hebrew word meaning vapor, futility, senselessness, and frustration. In other words, Solomon begins his journal by describing how human lives come and go as the world continues turning. And he warns us that if we keep our gaze “under the sun”—and don’t look to God’s purpose for us—life is indeed a futile vapor.
