1 A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the
day of one’s birth.
2 It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of
feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his
3 Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the
heart is made better.
4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is
in the house of mirth.
5 It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song
6 For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so is the laughter of the fool:
this also is vanity.
7 Surely oppression maketh a wise man mad; and a gift destroyeth the heart.
8 Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in
spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
9 Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of
10 Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than
these? for thou dost not enquire wisely concerning this.
11 Wisdom is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profit to them that
see the sun.
12 For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of
knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.
13 Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath
14 In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider:
God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should
find nothing after him.
15 All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that
perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his
life in his wickedness.
16 Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest
thou destroy thyself?
17 Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die
before thy time?
18 It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from this
withdraw not thine hand: for he that feareth God shall come forth of them all.
19 Wisdom strengtheneth the wise more than ten mighty men which are in the
20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
21 Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy
servant curse thee:
22 For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast
23 All this have I proved by wisdom: I said, I will be wise; but it was far

25 I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and
the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness
26 And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and
nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but
the sinner shall be taken by her.
27 Behold, this have I found, saith the preacher, counting one by one, to find
out the account:
28 Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I
found; but a woman among all those have I not found.
29 Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have
sought out many inventions.
