Ecclesiastes 12

Remember
<02142> (8798)
now thy Creator
<01254> (8802)
in the days
<03117>
of thy youth
<0979>_,
while the evil
<07451>
days
<03117>
come
<0935> (8799)
not, nor the years
<08141>
draw nigh
<05060> (8689)_,
when thou shalt say
<0559> (8799)_,
I have no pleasure
<02656>
in them;
While the sun
<08121>_,
or the light
<0216>_,
or the moon
<03394>_,
or the stars
<03556>_,
be not darkened
<02821> (8799)_,
nor the clouds
<05645>
return
<07725> (8804)
after
<0310>
the rain
<01653>_:
In the day
<03117>
when the keepers
<08104> (8802)
of the house
<01004>
shall tremble
<02111> (8799)_,
and the strong
<02428>
men
<0582>
shall bow
<05791> (8694)
themselves, and the grinders
<02912> (8802)
cease
<0988> (8804)
because they are few
<04591> (8765)_,
and those that look out
<07200> (8802)
of the windows
<0699>
be darkened
<02821> (8804)_,
{the grinders...: or, the grinders fail, because they grind little}
And the doors
<01817>
shall be shut
<05462> (8795)
in the streets
<07784>_,
when the sound
<06963>
of the grinding
<02913>
is low
<08217>_,
and he shall rise up
<06965> (8799)
at the voice
<06963>
of the bird
<06833>_,
and all the daughters
<01323>
of musick
<07892>
shall be brought low
<07817> (8735)_;
Also [when] they shall be afraid
<03372> (8799)
of [that which is] high
<01364>_,
and fears
<02849>
[shall be] in the way
<01870>_,
and the almond tree
<08247>
shall flourish
<05006> (8686)_,
and the grasshopper
<02284>
shall be a burden
<05445> (8691)_,
and desire
<035>
shall fail
<06565> (8686)_:
because man
<0120>
goeth
<01980> (8802)
to his long
<05769>
home
<01004>_,
and the mourners
<05594> (8802)
go about
<05437> (8804)
the streets
<07784>_:
Or ever
<03808>
the silver
<03701>
cord
<02256>
be loosed
<07576> (8735) (8675) <07368> (8735)_,
or the golden
<02091>
bowl
<01543>
be broken
<07533> (8799)_,
or the pitcher
<03537>
be broken
<07665> (8735)
at the fountain
<04002>_,
or the wheel
<01534>
broken
<07533> (8738)
at the cistern
<0953>_.
Then shall the dust
<06083>
return
<07725> (8799)
to the earth
<0776>
as it was: and the spirit
<07307>
shall return
<07725> (8799)
unto God
<0430>
who gave
<05414> (8804)
it.
Vanity
<01892>
of vanities
<01892>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the preacher
<06953>_;
all [is] vanity
<01892>_.
And moreover
<03148>_,
because the preacher
<06953>
was wise
<02450>_,
he still taught
<03925> (8765)
the people
<05971>
knowledge
<01847>_;
yea, he gave good heed
<0239> (8765)_,
and sought out
<02713> (8765)_,
[and] set in order
<08626> (8765)
many
<07235> (8687)
proverbs
<04912>_.
{moreover...: or, the more wise the preacher was, etc}
The preacher
<06953>
sought
<01245> (8765)
to find out
<04672> (8800)
acceptable
<02656>
words
<01697>_:
and [that which was] written
<03789> (8803)
[was] upright
<03476>_,
[even] words
<01697>
of truth
<0571>_.
{acceptable...: Heb. words of delight}
The words
<01697>
of the wise
<02450>
[are] as goads
<01861>_,
and as nails
<04930>
fastened
<05193> (8803)
[by] the masters
<01167>
of assemblies
<0627>_,
[which] are given
<05414> (8738)
from one
<0259>
shepherd
<07462> (8802)_.
And further
<03148>_,
by these
<01992>_,
my son
<01121>_,
be admonished
<02094> (8734)_:
of making
<06213> (8800)
many
<07235> (8687)
books
<05612>
[there is] no end
<07093>_;
and much
<07235> (8687)
study
<03854>
[is] a weariness
<03024>
of the flesh
<01320>_.
{study: or, reading}
Let us hear
<08085> (8799)
the conclusion
<05490>
of the whole matter
<01697>_:
Fear
<03372> (8798)
God
<0430>_,
and keep
<08104> (8798)
his commandments
<04687>_:
for this [is] the whole [duty] of man
<0120>_.
{Let...: or, The end of the matter, even all that hath been heard, is}
For God
<0430>
shall bring
<0935> (8686)
every work
<04639>
into judgment
<04941>_,
with every secret thing
<05956> (8737)_,
whether [it be] good
<02896>_,
or whether [it be] evil
<07451>_.
