To fully understand the question asked one must read from verse 24-25---Which states that the knowledge of God is man's glory'. Jeremiah after lamenting the folly of his faithless people turns their attention to the true source of wisdom---the Lord Himself (9:23-10:25). True wisdom was to be found in the following qualities of christian life :- LOVING-KINDNESS (the exercise of true covenant loyalty); JUDGMENT (consistent application of justice for all; RIGHTEOUSNESS (maintenance of what was right is the sight of the Lord in all of life).

ECCL. 9:11 spoke of wisdom and strength, Five statements of unexpected results are to be followed by an explanation. Man's ability cannot guarantee the results (V.11) because of the equalizing effects of time and chance.

Psalm 33: 16-18---V.18 "Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy"

1 Cor.1:31; "He that glorieth, let Him glory in the Lord"

Micah 7:18, "Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity; and passeth by(over) the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? He raineth not his anger forever, because he delighteth in mercy (loving- kindness)----------The forgiveness and pardon of a merciful God toward a sinful mankind is declared by the Scriptures and is to be based on the redemptive work of the Saviour
