ECCLESIASTES 9
1: For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God: no man knoweth either love or hatred by all that is before them.
2: All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.
3: This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.
4: For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.
5: For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
6: Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
7: Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepteth thy works.
8: Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment.
9: Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.
10: Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
11: I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
12: For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.
13: This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me:
14: There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it:
15: Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man.
16: Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
17: The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.
18: Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.


ECCLESIASTES 10
1: Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.
2: A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left.
3: Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool.
4: If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding pacifieth great offences.
5: There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler:
6: Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place.
7: I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.
8: He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
9: Whoso removeth stones shall be hurt therewith; and he that cleaveth wood shall be endangered thereby.
10: If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.
11: Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment; and a babbler is no better.
12: The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.
13: The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness: and the end of his talk is mischievous madness.
14: A fool also is full of words: a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall be after him, who can tell him?
15: The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city.
16: Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning!
17: Blessed art thou, O land, when thy king is the son of nobles, and thy princes eat in due season, for strength, and not for drunkenness!
18: By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.
19: A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.
20: Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.


HEBREWS 4
1: Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
2: For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
3: For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
4: For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
5: And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.
6: Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
7: Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
8: For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
9: There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
10: For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
11: Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13: Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
14: Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
15: For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16: Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
