Summary of Ecclesiastes 4:2

Ecclesiastes 4:2 (ESV)

2 And I thought the dead who are already dead more fortunate than the living who are still alive.

The oppression and injustice on earth is so bad that the Preacher writes that he praises the dead above the oppressed. The dead are more fortunate. The living still have to experience injustices against themselves.
