Ecclesiastes 9

For all this I considered
<05414> (8804)
in my heart
<03820>
even to declare
<0952> (8800)
all this, that the righteous
<06662>_,
and the wise
<02450>_,
and their works
<05652>_,
[are] in the hand
<03027>
of God
<0430>_:
no man
<0120>
knoweth
<03045> (8802)
either
<01571>
love
<0160>
or hatred
<08135>
[by] all [that is] before
<06440>
them. {I considered...: Heb. I gave, or, set to my heart}
All [things come] alike to all: [there is] one
<0259>
event
<04745>
to the righteous
<06662>_,
and to the wicked
<07563>_;
to the good
<02896>
and to the clean
<02889>_,
and to the unclean
<02931>_;
to him that sacrificeth
<02076> (8802)_,
and to him that
<0834>
sacrificeth
<02076> (8802)
not: as [is] the good
<02896>_,
so [is] the sinner
<02398> (8802)_;
[and] he that sweareth
<07650> (8737)_,
as [he] that feareth
<03373>
an oath
<07621>_.
This [is] an evil
<07451>
among all [things] that are done
<06213> (8738)
under the sun
<08121>_,
that [there is] one
<0259>
event
<04745>
unto all: yea, also the heart
<03820>
of the sons
<01121>
of men
<0120>
is full
<04390> (8804)
of evil
<07451>_,
and madness
<01947>
[is] in their heart
<03824>
while they live
<02416>_,
and after
<0310>
that [they go] to the dead
<04191> (8801)_.
For
<04310>
to him that is
<03426>
joined
<02266> (8792) (8675) <0977> (8792)
to all the living
<02416>
there is hope
<0986>_:
for a living
<02416>
dog
<03611>
is better
<02896>
than a dead
<04191> (8801)
lion
<0738>_.
For the living
<02416>
know
<03045> (8802)
that they shall die
<04191> (8799)_:
but the dead
<04191> (8801)
know
<03045> (8802)
not any thing
<03972>_,
neither have they any more a reward
<07939>_;
for the memory
<02143>
of them is forgotten
<07911> (8738)_.
Also their love
<0160>_,
and their hatred
<08135>_,
and their envy
<07068>_,
is now
<03528>
perished
<06> (8804)_;
neither have they any more a portion
<02506>
for ever
<05769>
in any [thing] that is done
<06213> (8738)
under the sun
<08121>_.
Go thy way
<03212> (8798)_,
eat
<0398> (8798)
thy bread
<03899>
with joy
<08057>_,
and drink
<08354> (8798)
thy wine
<03196>
with a merry
<02896>
heart
<03820>_;
for God
<0430>
now
<03528>
accepteth
<07521> (8804)
thy works
<04639>_.
Let thy garments
<0899>
be always
<06256>
white
<03836>_;
and let thy head
<07218>
lack
<02637> (8799)
no ointment
<08081>_.
Live
<02416>
joyfully
<07200> (8798)
with the wife
<0802>
whom thou lovest
<0157> (8804)
all the days
<03117>
of the life
<02416>
of thy vanity
<01892>_,
which he hath given
<05414> (8804)
thee under the sun
<08121>_,
all the days
<03117>
of thy vanity
<01892>_:
for that [is] thy portion
<02506>
in [this] life
<02416>_,
and in thy labour
<05999>
which thou takest
<06001>
under the sun
<08121>_.
{Live...: Heb. See, or, Enjoy life}
Whatsoever thy hand
<03027>
findeth
<04672> (8799)
to do
<06213> (8800)_,
do
<06213> (8798)
[it] with thy might
<03581>_;
for [there is] no work
<04639>_,
nor device
<02808>_,
nor knowledge
<01847>_,
nor wisdom
<02451>_,
in the grave
<07585>_,
whither thou goest
<01980> (8802)_.
I returned
<07725> (8804)_,
and saw
<07200> (8800)
under the sun
<08121>_,
that the race
<04793>
[is] not to the swift
<07031>_,
nor the battle
<04421>
to the strong
<01368>_,
neither yet bread
<03899>
to the wise
<02450>_,
nor yet riches
<06239>
to men of understanding
<0995> (8737)_,
nor yet favour
<02580>
to men of skill
<03045> (8802)_;
but time
<06256>
and chance
<06294>
happeneth
<07136> (8799)
to them all.
For man
<0120>
also knoweth
<03045> (8799)
not his time
<06256>_:
as the fishes
<01709>
that are taken
<0270> (8737)
in an evil
<07451>
net
<04685>_,
and as the birds
<06833>
that are caught
<0270> (8803)
in the snare
<06341>_;
so
<01992>
[are] the sons
<01121>
of men
<0120>
snared
<03369> (8795)
in an evil
<07451>
time
<06256>_,
when it falleth
<05307> (8799)
suddenly
<06597>
upon them.
This
<02090>
wisdom
<02451>
have I seen
<07200> (8804)
also under the sun
<08121>_,
and it [seemed] great
<01419>
unto me:
[There was] a little
<06996>
city
<05892>_,
and few
<04592>
men
<0582>
within it; and there came
<0935> (8804)
a great
<01419>
king
<04428>
against it, and besieged
<05437> (8804)
it, and built
<01129> (8804)
great
<01419>
bulwarks
<04685>
against it:
Now there was found
<04672> (8804)
in it a poor
<04542>
wise
<02450>
man
<0376>_,
and he by his wisdom
<02451>
delivered
<04422> (8765)
the city
<05892>_;
yet no man
<0120>
remembered
<02142> (8804)
that same poor
<04542>
man
<0376>_.
Then said
<0559> (8804)
I, Wisdom
<02451>
[is] better
<02896>
than strength
<01369>_:
nevertheless the poor man's
<04542>
wisdom
<02451>
[is] despised
<0959> (8803)_,
and his words
<01697>
are not heard
<08085> (8737)_.
The words
<01697>
of wise
<02450>
[men are] heard
<08085> (8737)
in quiet
<05183>
more than the cry
<02201>
of him that ruleth
<04910> (8802)
among fools
<03684>_.
Wisdom
<02451>
[is] better
<02896>
than weapons
<03627>
of war
<07128>_:
but one
<0259>
sinner
<02398> (8802)
destroyeth
<06> (8762)
much
<07235> (8687)
good
<02896>_.
