The main speaker in the book of Ecclesiastes is often considered to be Solomon, or sometimes he is called “the preacher.” But the name does not appear in the text, and the Hebrew word for “the preacher” does not mean “preacher.”
In Hebrew the verb’s gender should agree with its subject and number. The word “Qohelet” is a feminine singular participle functioning as a noun. So the word requires feminine singular forms of verbs. However, because Qohelet is introduced as a “son” of David, almost all verbs for Qohelet is masculine singular except for Eccl 7:27, which seems quite intentional and worth giving your attention.
