Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 8:3 - Don't be hasty to go out of his presence. Don't persist in an evil thing, for he does whatever pleases him,

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 8:9 - All this have I seen, and applied my mind to every work that is done under the sun. There is a time in which one man has power over another to his hurt.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 8:10 - So I saw the wicked buried. Indeed they came also from holiness. They went and were forgotten in the city where they did this. This also is vanity.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 8:15 - Then I commended mirth, because a man has no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be joyful: for that will accompany him in his labor all the days of his life which God has given him under the sun.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 8:16 - When I applied my heart to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done on the eretz (for also there is that neither day nor night sees sleep with his eyes),

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 8:17 - then I saw all the work of God, that man can't find out the work that is done under the sun, because however much a man labors to seek it out, yet he won't find it. Yes, moreover, though a wise man thinks he can comprehend it, yet he won't be able to find it.
