Ecclesiastes 7:1-6

A good name
<08034>
[is] better
<02896>
than precious
<02896>
ointment
<08081>_;
and the day
<03117>
of death
<04194>
than the day
<03117>
of one's birth
<03205> (8736)_.
[It is] better
<02896>
to go
<03212> (8800)
to the house
<01004>
of mourning
<060>_,
than to go
<03212> (8800)
to the house
<01004>
of feasting
<04960>_:
for
<0834>
that [is] the end
<05490>
of all men
<0120>_;
and the living
<02416>
will lay
<05414> (8799)
[it] to his heart
<03820>_.
Sorrow
<03708>
[is] better
<02896>
than laughter
<07814>_:
for by the sadness
<07455>
of the countenance
<06440>
the heart
<03820>
is made better
<03190> (8799)_.
{Sorrow: or, Anger}
The heart
<03820>
of the wise
<02450>
[is] in the house
<01004>
of mourning
<060>_;
but the heart
<03820>
of fools
<03684>
[is] in the house
<01004>
of mirth
<08057>_.
[It is] better
<02896>
to hear
<08085> (8800)
the rebuke
<01606>
of the wise
<02450>_,
than for a man
<0376>
to hear
<08085> (8802)
the song
<07892>
of fools
<03684>_.
For as the crackling
<06963>
of thorns
<05518>
under a pot
<05518>_,
so [is] the laughter
<07814>
of the fool
<03684>_:
this also [is] vanity
<01892>_.
{crackling: Heb. sound}
