Summary of Ecclesiastes 4:11

Ecclesiastes 4:11 (ESV)

11 Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone?

Another example of how it is better not to be alone. The nights in Israel can be rather cold. You can feel very cold if you lie in bed all by yourself. It is better if you lie in a bed with someone else. Then you benefit from each other’s warmth. Then you can keep each other warm. This text is sometimes used to condone promiscuity or a homosexual relationship. However, this text really has nothing to do with sexuality but with being together and helping one another.
