Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:1 - Better is a name than good perfume, And the day of death than the day of birth.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:2 - Better to go unto a house of mourning, Than to go unto a house of banqueting, For that is the end of all men, And the living layeth it unto his heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:3 - Better is sorrow than laughter, For by the sadness of the face the heart becometh better.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:5 - Better to hear a rebuke of a wise man, Than for a man to hear a song of fools,

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:13 - See the work of God, For who is able to make straight that which He made crooked?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:14 - In a day of prosperity be in gladness, And in a day of evil consider. Also this over-against that hath God made, To the intent that man doth not find anything after him.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:15 - The whole I have considered in the days of my vanity. There is a righteous one perishing in his righteousness, and there is a wrong-doer prolonging himself in his wrong.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:17 - Do not much wrong, neither be thou a fool, why dost thou die within thy time?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:18 - It is good that thou dost lay hold on this, and also, from that withdrawest not thy hand, for whoso is fearing God goeth out with them all.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:19 - The wisdom giveth strength to a wise man, more than wealth the rulers who have been in a city.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:20 - Because there is not a righteous man on earth that doth good and sinneth not.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:21 - Also to all the words that they speak give not thy heart, that thou hear not thy servant reviling thee.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:22 - For many times also hath thy heart known that thou thyself also hast reviled others.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:23 - All this I have tried by wisdom; I have said, 'I am wise,' and it is far from me.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:24 - Far off is that which hath been, and deep, deep, who doth find it?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:25 - I have turned round, also my heart, to know and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and reason, and to know the wrong of folly, and of foolishness the madness.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:26 - And I am finding more bitter than death, the woman whose heart is nets and snares, her hands are bands; the good before God escapeth from her, but the sinner is captured by her.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:27 - See, this I have found, said the Preacher, one to one, to find out the reason

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:28 - (that still my soul had sought, and I had not found), One man, a teacher, I have found, and a woman among all these I have not found.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 7:29 - See, this alone I have found, that God made man upright, and they -- they have sought out many devices.
