Ecclesiastes 10

Dead
<04194>
flies
<02070>
cause the ointment
<08081>
of the apothecary
<07543> (8802)
to send forth
<05042> (8686)
a stinking savour
<0887> (8686)_:
[so doth] a little
<04592>
folly
<05531>
him that is in reputation
<03368>
for wisdom
<02451>
[and] honour
<03519>_.
{Dead...: Heb. Flies of death}
A wise man's
<02450>
heart
<03820>
[is] at his right hand
<03225>_;
but a fool's
<03684>
heart
<03820>
at his left
<08040>_.
Yea also, when he that is a fool
<05530>
walketh
<01980> (8802)
by the way
<01870>_,
his wisdom
<03820>
faileth
<02638>
[him], and he saith
<0559> (8804)
to every one [that] he [is] a fool
<05530>_.
{his...: Heb. his heart}
If the spirit
<07307>
of the ruler
<04910> (8802)
rise up
<05927> (8799)
against thee, leave
<03240> (8686)
not thy place
<04725>_;
for yielding
<04832>
pacifieth
<03240> (8686)
great
<01419>
offences
<02399>_.
There is
<03426>
an evil
<07451>
[which] I have seen
<07200> (8804)
under the sun
<08121>_,
as an error
<07684>
[which] proceedeth
<03318> (8802)
from
<06440>
the ruler
<07989>_:
{from: Heb. from before}
Folly
<05529>
is set
<05414> (8738)
in great
<07227>
dignity
<04791>_,
and the rich
<06223>
sit
<03427> (8799)
in low place
<08216>_.
{in great...: Heb. in great heights}
I have seen
<07200> (8804)
servants
<05650>
upon horses
<05483>_,
and princes
<08269>
walking
<01980> (8802)
as servants
<05650>
upon the earth
<0776>_.
He that diggeth
<02658> (8802)
a pit
<01475>
shall fall
<05307> (8799)
into it; and whoso breaketh
<06555> (8802)
an hedge
<01447>_,
a serpent
<05175>
shall bite
<05391> (8799)
him.
Whoso removeth
<05265> (8688)
stones
<068>
shall be hurt
<06087> (8735)
therewith; [and] he that cleaveth
<01234> (8802)
wood
<06086>
shall be endangered
<05533> (8735)
thereby.
If the iron
<01270>
be blunt
<06949> (8765)_,
and he do not whet
<07043> (8773)
the edge
<06440>_,
then must he put
<01396> (8762)
to more strength
<02428>_:
but wisdom
<02451>
[is] profitable
<03504>
to direct
<03787> (8687)_.
Surely the serpent
<05175>
will bite
<05391> (8799)
without enchantment
<03908>_;
and a babbler
<03956> <01167>
is no better
<03504>_.
{a babbler: Heb. the master of the tongue}
The words
<01697>
of a wise man's
<02450>
mouth
<06310>
[are] gracious
<02580>_;
but the lips
<08193>
of a fool
<03684>
will swallow up
<01104> (8762)
himself. {gracious: Heb. grace}
The beginning
<08462>
of the words
<01697>
of his mouth
<06310>
[is] foolishness
<05531>_:
and the end
<0319>
of his talk
<06310>
[is] mischievous
<07451>
madness
<01948>_.
{his talk: Heb. his mouth}
A fool
<05530>
also is full
<07235> (8686)
of words
<01697>_:
a man
<0120>
cannot tell
<03045> (8799)
what shall be; and what shall be after
<0310>
him, who can tell
<05046> (8686)
him? {is full...: Heb. multiplieth words}
The labour
<05999>
of the foolish
<03684>
wearieth
<03021> (8762)
every one of them, because he knoweth
<03045> (8804)
not how to go
<03212> (8800)
to the city
<05892>_.
Woe
<0337>
to thee, O land
<0776>_,
when thy king
<04428>
[is] a child
<05288>_,
and thy princes
<08269>
eat
<0398> (8799)
in the morning
<01242>_!
Blessed
<0835>
[art] thou, O land
<0776>_,
when thy king
<04428>
[is] the son
<01121>
of nobles
<02715>_,
and thy princes
<08269>
eat
<0398> (8799)
in due season
<06256>_,
for strength
<01369>_,
and not for drunkenness
<08358>_!
By much slothfulness
<06103>
the building
<04746>
decayeth
<04355> (8735)_;
and through idleness
<08220>
of the hands
<03027>
the house
<01004>
droppeth through
<01811> (8799)_.
A feast
<03899>
is made
<06213> (8802)
for laughter
<07814>_,
and wine
<03196>
maketh merry
<08055> (8762) <02416>_:
but money
<03701>
answereth
<06030> (8799)
all [things]. {maketh...: Heb. maketh glad the life}
Curse
<07043> (8762)
not the king
<04428>_,
no not in thy thought
<04093>_;
and curse
<07043> (8762)
not the rich
<06223>
in thy bedchamber
<02315> <04904>_:
for a bird
<05775>
of the air
<08064>
shall carry
<03212> (8686)
the voice
<06963>_,
and that which hath
<01167>
wings
<03671>
shall tell
<05046> (8686)
the matter
<01697>_.
{thought: or, conscience}
