Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:1 - A good name is better than precious ointment, and the day of death than the day of one's birth.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:2 - It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting: in that that is the end of all men, and the living taketh it to heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:3 - Vexation is better than laughter; for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:4 - The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools in the house of mirth.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:5 - It is better for a man to hear the rebuke of the wise, than to hear the song of fools.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:6 - For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so is the laughter of the fool. This also is vanity.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:7 - Surely oppression maketh a wise man mad, and a gift destroyeth the heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:8 - Better is the end of a thing than its beginning; better is a patient spirit than a proud spirit.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:9 - Be not hasty in thy spirit to be vexed; for vexation resteth in the bosom of fools.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:10 - Say not, How is it that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:11 - Wisdom is as good as an inheritance, and profitable to them that see the sun.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:12 - For wisdom is a defence as money is a defence; but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom maketh them that possess it to live.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:13 - Consider the work of God; for who can make straight what he hath made crooked?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:14 - In the day of prosperity enjoy good, and in the day of adversity consider: God hath also set the one beside the other, to the end that man should find out nothing of what shall be after him.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:15 - All this have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a righteous man that perisheth by his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his days by his wickedness.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:16 - Be not righteous overmuch; neither make thyself overwise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:17 - Be not overmuch wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:18 - It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from that withdraw not thy hand: for he that feareth God cometh forth from them all.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:19 - Wisdom strengtheneth the wise more than ten mighty men that are in a city.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:20 - Surely there is not a righteous man upon earth, that doeth good and sinneth not.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:21 - Also give not heed unto all words that are spoken, lest thou hear thy servant curse thee.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:22 - For also thine own heart knoweth that oftentimes thou thyself likewise hast cursed others.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:23 - All this have I tried by wisdom: I said, I will be wise; but it was far from me.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:24 - Whatever hath been, is far off, and exceeding deep: who will find it out?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:25 - I turned, I and my heart, to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom and reason, and to know wickedness to be folly, and foolishness to be madness;

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:26 - and I found more bitter than death the woman whose heart is nets and snares, and whose hands are bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be caught by her.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:27 - See this which I have found, saith the Preacher, searching one by one to find out the reason;

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:28 - which my soul yet seeketh, and I have not found: one man among a thousand have I found, but a woman among all those have I not found.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:29 - Only see this which I have found: that God made man upright, but they have sought out many devices.
