Chapter 8

  1. 1. Who is as the wise
    H2450
    man? and who knoweth
    H3045
    the interpretation
    H6592
    of a thing?
    H1697
    a man's
    H120
    wisdom
    H2451
    maketh his face
    H6440
    to shine,
    H215
    and the boldness
    H5797
    of his face
    H6440
    shall be changed.
    H8132
  2. 2. I counsel thee to keep
    H8104
    the king's
    H4428
    commandment,
    H6310
    and that in regard
    H1700
    of the oath
    H7621
    of God.
    H430
  3. 3. Be not hasty
    H926
    to go out
    H3212
    of his sight:
    H6440
    stand
    H5975
    not in an evil
    H7451
    thing;
    H1697
    for he doeth
    H6213
    whatsoever pleaseth
    H2654
    him.
  4. 4. Where the word
    H1697
    of a king
    H4428
    is, there is power:
    H7983
    and who may say
    H559
    unto him, What doest
    H6213
    thou?
  5. 5. Whoso keepeth
    H8104
    the commandment
    H4687
    shall feel
    H3045
    no evil
    H7451
    thing:
    H1697
    and a wise man's
    H2450
    heart
    H3820
    discerneth
    H3045
    both time
    H6256
    and judgment.
    H4941
  6. 6. Because to every purpose
    H2656
    there is
    H3426
    time
    H6256
    and judgment,
    H4941
    therefore the misery
    H7451
    of man
    H120
    is great
    H7227
    upon him.
  7. 7. For he knoweth
    H3045
    not that which shall be: for who can tell
    H5046
    him when it shall be?
  8. 8. There is no man
    H120
    that hath power
    H7989
    over the spirit
    H7307
    to retain
    H3607
    the spirit;
    H7307
    neither hath he power
    H7983
    in the day
    H3117
    of death:
    H4194
    and there is no discharge
    H4917
    in that war;
    H4421
    neither shall wickedness
    H7562
    deliver
    H4422
    those that are given
    H1167
    to it.
  9. 9. All this have I seen,
    H7200
    and applied
    H5414
    my heart
    H3820
    unto every work
    H4639
    that is done
    H6213
    under the sun:
    H8121
    there is a time
    H6256
    wherein one man
    H120
    ruleth
    H7980
    over another to his own hurt.
    H7451
  10. 10. And so
    H3651
    I saw
    H7200
    the wicked
    H7563
    buried,
    H6912
    who had come
    H935
    and gone
    H1980
    from the place
    H4725
    of the holy,
    H6918
    and they were forgotten
    H7911
    in the city
    H5892
    where they had so done:
    H6213
    this is also vanity.
    H1892
  11. 11. Because sentence
    H6599
    against an evil
    H7451
    work
    H4639
    is not executed
    H6213
    speedily,
    H4120
    therefore the heart
    H3820
    of the sons
    H1121
    of men
    H120
    is fully set
    H4390
    in them to do
    H6213
    evil.
    H7451
  12. 12. Though a sinner
    H2398
    do
    H6213
    evil
    H7451
    an hundred times,
    H3967
    and his days be prolonged,
    H748
    yet surely I know
    H3045
    that it shall be well
    H2896
    with them that fear
    H3373
    God,
    H430
    which fear
    H3372
    before
    H6440
    him:
  13. 13. But it shall not be well
    H2896
    with the wicked,
    H7563
    neither shall he prolong
    H748
    his days,
    H3117
    which are as a shadow;
    H6738
    because he feareth
    H3373
    not before
    H6440
    God.
    H430
  14. 14. There is
    H3426
    a vanity
    H1892
    which is done
    H6213
    upon the earth;
    H776
    that there be just
    H6662
    men, unto whom it happeneth
    H5060
    according to the work
    H4639
    of the wicked;
    H7563
    again, there be
    H3426
    wicked
    H7563
    men, to whom it happeneth
    H5060
    according to the work
    H4639
    of the righteous:
    H6662
    I said
    H559
    that this also
    H1571
    is vanity.
    H1892
  15. 15. Then I commended
    H7623
    mirth,
    H8057
    because a man
    H120
    hath no better thing
    H2896
    under the sun,
    H8121
    than to eat,
    H398
    and to drink,
    H8354
    and to be merry:
    H8055
    for that shall abide
    H3867
    with him of his labour
    H5999
    the days
    H3117
    of his life,
    H2416
    which God
    H430
    giveth
    H5414
    him under the sun.
    H8121
  16. 16. When I applied
    H5414
    mine heart
    H3820
    to know
    H3045
    wisdom,
    H2451
    and to see
    H7200
    the business
    H6045
    that is done
    H6213
    upon the earth:
    H776
    (for also there is that neither day
    H3117
    nor night
    H3915
    seeth
    H7200
    sleep
    H8142
    with his eyes:)
    H5869
  17. 17. Then I beheld
    H7200
    all the work
    H4639
    of God,
    H430
    that a man
    H120
    cannot
    H3201
    find out
    H4672
    the work
    H4639
    that is done
    H6213
    under the sun:
    H8121
    because
    H834
    though
    H7945
    a man
    H120
    labour
    H5998
    to seek it out,
    H1245
    yet he shall not find
    H4672
    it; yea further; though a wise
    H2450
    man think
    H559
    to know
    H3045
    it, yet shall he not be able
    H3201
    to find
    H4672
    it.
