Chapter 7

  1. 1. A good name
    H8034
    is better
    H2896
    than precious
    H2896
    ointment;
    H8081
    and the day
    H3117
    of death
    H4194
    than the day
    H3117
    of one's birth.
    H3205
  2. 2. It is better
    H2896
    to go
    H3212
    to the house
    H1004
    of mourning,
    H60
    than to go
    H3212
    to the house
    H1004
    of feasting:
    H4960
    for
    H834
    that is the end
    H5490
    of all men;
    H120
    and the living
    H2416
    will lay
    H5414
    it to his heart.
    H3820
  3. 3. Sorrow
    H3708
    is better
    H2896
    than laughter:
    H7814
    for by the sadness
    H7455
    of the countenance
    H6440
    the heart
    H3820
    is made better.
    H3190
  4. 4. The heart
    H3820
    of the wise
    H2450
    is in the house
    H1004
    of mourning;
    H60
    but the heart
    H3820
    of fools
    H3684
    is in the house
    H1004
    of mirth.
    H8057
  5. 5. It is better
    H2896
    to hear
    H8085
    the rebuke
    H1606
    of the wise,
    H2450
    than for a man
    H376
    to hear
    H8085
    the song
    H7892
    of fools.
    H3684
  6. 6. For as the crackling
    H6963
    of thorns
    H5518
    under a pot,
    H5518
    so is the laughter
    H7814
    of the fool:
    H3684
    this also is vanity.
    H1892
  7. 7. Surely oppression
    H6233
    maketh a wise man
    H2450
    mad;
    H1984
    and a gift
    H4979
    destroyeth
    H6
    the heart.
    H3820
  8. 8. Better
    H2896
    is the end
    H319
    of a thing
    H1697
    than the beginning
    H7225
    thereof: and the patient
    H750
    in spirit
    H7307
    is better
    H2896
    than the proud
    H1362
    in spirit.
    H7307
  9. 9. Be not hasty
    H926
    in thy spirit
    H7307
    to be angry:
    H3707
    for anger
    H3708
    resteth
    H5117
    in the bosom
    H2436
    of fools.
    H3684
  10. 10. Say
    H559
    not thou, What is the cause that the former
    H7223
    days
    H3117
    were better
    H2896
    than these? for thou dost not enquire
    H7592
    wisely
    H2451
    concerning this.
  11. 11. Wisdom
    H2451
    is good
    H2896
    with an inheritance:
    H5159
    and by it there is profit
    H3148
    to them that see
    H7200
    the sun.
    H8121
  12. 12. For wisdom
    H2451
    is a defence,
    H6738
    and money
    H3701
    is a defence:
    H6738
    but the excellency
    H3504
    of knowledge
    H1847
    is, that wisdom
    H2451
    giveth life
    H2421
    to them that have
    H1167
    it.
  13. 13. Consider
    H7200
    the work
    H4639
    of God:
    H430
    for who can
    H3201
    make that straight,
    H8626
    which he hath made crooked?
    H5791
  14. 14. In the day
    H3117
    of prosperity
    H2896
    be joyful,
    H2896
    but in the day
    H3117
    of adversity
    H7451
    consider:
    H7200
    God
    H430
    also hath set
    H6213
    the one over against
    H5980
    the other, to the end
    H1700
    that man
    H120
    should find
    H4672
    nothing
    H3972
    after
    H310
    him.
  15. 15. All things have I seen
    H7200
    in the days
    H3117
    of my vanity:
    H1892
    there is
    H3426
    a just
    H6662
    man that perisheth
    H6
    in his righteousness,
    H6664
    and there is a wicked
    H7563
    man that prolongeth
    H748
    his life in his wickedness.
    H7451
  16. 16. Be not righteous
    H6662
    over much;
    H7235
    neither make thyself over
    H3148
    wise:
    H2449
    why shouldest thou destroy
    H8074
    thyself?
  17. 17. Be not over much
    H7235
    wicked,
    H7561
    neither be thou foolish:
    H5530
    why shouldest thou die
    H4191
    before thy time?
    H6256
  18. 18. It is good
    H2896
    that thou shouldest take hold
    H270
    of this; yea, also from this
    H2088
    withdraw
    H3240
    not thine hand:
    H3027
    for he that feareth
    H3373
    God
    H430
    shall come forth
    H3318
    of them all.
  19. 19. Wisdom
    H2451
    strengtheneth
    H5810
    the wise
    H2450
    more than ten
    H6235
    mighty
    H7989
    men which are in the city.
    H5892
  20. 20. For there is not a just
    H6662
    man
    H120
    upon earth,
    H776
    that doeth
    H6213
    good,
    H2896
    and sinneth
    H2398
    not.
  21. 21. Also take
    H5414
    no heed
    H3820
    unto all words
    H1697
    that are spoken;
    H1696
    lest thou hear
    H8085
    thy servant
    H5650
    curse
    H7043
    thee:
  22. 22. For oftentimes
    H7227
    also
    H6471
    thine own heart
    H3820
    knoweth
    H3045
    that thou thyself likewise hast cursed
    H7043
    others.
    H312
  23. 23. All this
    H2090
    have I proved
    H5254
    by wisdom:
    H2451
    I said,
    H559
    I will be wise;
    H2449
    but it was far
    H7350
    from me.
  24. 24. That which is far off,
    H7350
    and exceeding deep,
    H6013
    who can find it out?
    H4672
  25. 25. I applied
    H5437
    mine heart
    H3820
    to know,
    H3045
    and to search,
    H8446
    and to seek out
    H1245
    wisdom,
    H2451
    and the reason
    H2808
    of things, and to know
    H3045
    the wickedness
    H7562
    of folly,
    H3689
    even of foolishness
    H5531
    and madness:
    H1947
  26. 26. And I find
    H4672
    more bitter
    H4751
    than death
    H4194
    the woman,
    H802
    whose heart
    H3820
    is snares
    H4685
    and nets,
    H2764
    and her hands
    H3027
    as bands:
    H612
    whoso pleaseth
    H6440
    H2896
    God
    H430
    shall escape
    H4422
    from her; but the sinner
    H2398
    shall be taken
    H3920
    by her.
  27. 27. Behold,
    H7200
    this have I found,
    H4672
    saith
    H559
    the preacher,
    H6953
    counting one
    H259
    by one,
    H259
    to find out
    H4672
    the account:
    H2808
  28. 28. Which yet my soul
    H5315
    seeketh,
    H1245
    but I find
    H4672
    not: one
    H259
    man
    H120
    among a thousand
    H505
    have I found;
    H4672
    but a woman
    H802
    among all those have I not found.
    H4672
  29. 29. Lo,
    H7200
    this only
    H905
    have I found,
    H4672
    that God
    H430
    hath made
    H6213
    man
    H120
    upright;
    H3477
    but they have sought out
    H1245
    many
    H7227
    inventions.
