Ecclesiastes

The word is strictly a Greek term, meaning "preacher," and corresponds to the Hebrew Koheleth (one who convenes an assembly). Since the writer of the book of the same name appears to describe himself in Ecclesiastes as "the son of David, king in Jerusalem" (1:1), he has been traditionally identified with Solomon, although modern scholars reject this identification.
