THE HOLY BIBLE


Ecclesiastes 9 | Bible Index | Catholic Bible

The Bible - Ecclesiastes 10


1 - Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.

2 - A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left.

3 - Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool.

4 - If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding pacifieth great offences.

5 - There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler:

6 - Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place.

7 - I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.

8 - He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.

9 - Whoso removeth stones shall be hurt therewith; and he that cleaveth wood shall be endangered thereby.

10 - If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.

11 - Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment; and a babbler is no better.

12 - The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.

13 - The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness: and the end of his talk is mischievous madness.

14 - A fool also is full of words: a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall be after him, who can tell him?

15 - The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city.

16 - Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning!

17 - Blessed art thou, O land, when thy king is the son of nobles, and thy princes eat in due season, for strength, and not for drunkenness!

18 - By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.

19 - A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.

20 - Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.
