Chapter 9

  1. 1. For all this I considered
    H5414
    in my heart
    H3820
    even to declare
    H952
    all this, that the righteous,
    H6662
    and the wise,
    H2450
    and their works,
    H5652
    are in the hand
    H3027
    of God:
    H430
    no man
    H120
    knoweth
    H3045
    either
    H1571
    love
    H160
    or hatred
    H8135
    by all that is before
    H6440
    them.
  2. 2. All things come alike to all: there is one
    H259
    event
    H4745
    to the righteous,
    H6662
    and to the wicked;
    H7563
    to the good
    H2896
    and to the clean,
    H2889
    and to the unclean;
    H2931
    to him that sacrificeth,
    H2076
    and to him that
    H834
    sacrificeth
    H2076
    not: as is the good,
    H2896
    so is the sinner;
    H2398
    and he that sweareth,
    H7650
    as he that feareth
    H3373
    an oath.
    H7621
  3. 3. This is an evil
    H7451
    among all things that are done
    H6213
    under the sun,
    H8121
    that there is one
    H259
    event
    H4745
    unto all: yea, also the heart
    H3820
    of the sons
    H1121
    of men
    H120
    is full
    H4390
    of evil,
    H7451
    and madness
    H1947
    is in their heart
    H3824
    while they live,
    H2416
    and after
    H310
    that they go to the dead.
    H4191
  4. 4. For
    H4310
    to him that is
    H3426
    joined
    H2266
    H977
    to all the living
    H2416
    there is hope:
    H986
    for a living
    H2416
    dog
    H3611
    is better
    H2896
    than a dead
    H4191
    lion.
    H738
  5. 5. For the living
    H2416
    know
    H3045
    that they shall die:
    H4191
    but the dead
    H4191
    know
    H3045
    not any thing,
    H3972
    neither have they any more a reward;
    H7939
    for the memory
    H2143
    of them is forgotten.
    H7911
  6. 6. Also their love,
    H160
    and their hatred,
    H8135
    and their envy,
    H7068
    is now
    H3528
    perished;
    H6
    neither have they any more a portion
    H2506
    for ever
    H5769
    in any thing that is done
    H6213
    under the sun.
    H8121
  7. 7. Go thy way,
    H3212
    eat
    H398
    thy bread
    H3899
    with joy,
    H8057
    and drink
    H8354
    thy wine
    H3196
    with a merry
    H2896
    heart;
    H3820
    for God
    H430
    now
    H3528
    accepteth
    H7521
    thy works.
    H4639
  8. 8. Let thy garments
    H899
    be always
    H6256
    white;
    H3836
    and let thy head
    H7218
    lack
    H2637
    no ointment.
    H8081
  9. 9. Live
    H2416
    joyfully
    H7200
    with the wife
    H802
    whom thou lovest
    H157
    all the days
    H3117
    of the life
    H2416
    of thy vanity,
    H1892
    which he hath given
    H5414
    thee under the sun,
    H8121
    all the days
    H3117
    of thy vanity:
    H1892
    for that is thy portion
    H2506
    in this life,
    H2416
    and in thy labour
    H5999
    which thou takest
    H6001
    under the sun.
    H8121
  10. 10. Whatsoever thy hand
    H3027
    findeth
    H4672
    to do,
    H6213
    do
    H6213
    it with thy might;
    H3581
    for there is no work,
    H4639
    nor device,
    H2808
    nor knowledge,
    H1847
    nor wisdom,
    H2451
    in the grave,
    H7585
    whither thou goest.
    H1980
  11. 11. I returned,
    H7725
    and saw
    H7200
    under the sun,
    H8121
    that the race
    H4793
    is not to the swift,
    H7031
    nor the battle
    H4421
    to the strong,
    H1368
    neither yet bread
    H3899
    to the wise,
    H2450
    nor yet riches
    H6239
    to men of understanding,
    H995
    nor yet favour
    H2580
    to men of skill;
    H3045
    but time
    H6256
    and chance
    H6294
    happeneth
    H7136
    to them all.
  12. 12. For man
    H120
    also knoweth
    H3045
    not his time:
    H6256
    as the fishes
    H1709
    that are taken
    H270
    in an evil
    H7451
    net,
    H4685
    and as the birds
    H6833
    that are caught
    H270
    in the snare;
    H6341
    so
    H1992
    are the sons
    H1121
    of men
    H120
    snared
    H3369
    in an evil
    H7451
    time,
    H6256
    when it falleth
    H5307
    suddenly
    H6597
    upon them.
  13. 13. This
    H2090
    wisdom
    H2451
    have I seen
    H7200
    also under the sun,
    H8121
    and it seemed great
    H1419
    unto me:
  14. 14. There was a little
    H6996
    city,
    H5892
    and few
    H4592
    men
    H582
    within it; and there came
    H935
    a great
    H1419
    king
    H4428
    against it, and besieged
    H5437
    it, and built
    H1129
    great
    H1419
    bulwarks
    H4685
    against it:
  15. 15. Now there was found
    H4672
    in it a poor
    H4542
    wise
    H2450
    man,
    H376
    and he by his wisdom
    H2451
    delivered
    H4422
    the city;
    H5892
    yet no man
    H120
    remembered
    H2142
    that same poor
    H4542
    man.
    H376
  16. 16. Then said
    H559
    I, Wisdom
    H2451
    is better
    H2896
    than strength:
    H1369
    nevertheless the poor man's
    H4542
    wisdom
    H2451
    is despised,
    H959
    and his words
    H1697
    are not heard.
    H8085
  17. 17. The words
    H1697
    of wise
    H2450
    men are heard
    H8085
    in quiet
    H5183
    more than the cry
    H2201
    of him that ruleth
    H4910
    among fools.
    H3684
  18. 18. Wisdom
    H2451
    is better
    H2896
    than weapons
    H3627
    of war:
    H7128
    but one
    H259
    sinner
    H2398
    destroyeth
    H6
    much
    H7235
    good.
    H2896
