1
Who [is] as the wise [2450] [man]? and who knoweth [3045] the interpretation [6592] of a thing? [1697] a man's [0120] wisdom [2451] maketh his face [6440] to shine, [0215] and the boldness [5797] of his face [6440] shall be changed. [8132]
2
I [counsel thee] to keep [8104] the king's [4428] commandment, [6310] and [that] in regard [1700] of the oath [7621] of God. [0430]
3
Be not hasty [0926] to go [3212] out of his sight: [6440] stand [5975] not in an evil [7451] thing; [1697] for he doeth [6213] whatsoever pleaseth [2654] him.
4
Where the word [1697] of a king [4428] [is, there is] power: [7983] and who may say [0559] unto him, What doest [6213] thou?
5
Whoso keepeth [8104] the commandment [4687] shall feel [3045] no evil [7451] thing: [1697] and a wise man's [2450] heart [3820] discerneth [3045] both time [6256] and judgment. [4941]
6
Because to every purpose [2656] there is [3426] time [6256] and judgment, [4941] therefore the misery [7451] of man [0120] [is] great [7227] upon him.
7
For he knoweth [3045] not that which shall be: for who can tell [5046] him when it shall be?
8
[There is] no man [0120] that hath power [7989] over the spirit [7307] to retain [3607] the spirit; [7307] neither [hath he] power [7983] in the day [3117] of death: [4194] and [there is] no discharge [4917] in [that] war; [4421] neither shall wickedness [7562] deliver [4422] those that are given [1167] to it.
9
All this have I seen, [7200] and applied [5414] my heart [3820] unto every work [4639] that is done [6213] under the sun: [8121] [there is] a time [6256] wherein one man [0120] ruleth [7980] over another [0120] to his own hurt. [7451]
10
And so [3651] I saw [7200] the wicked [7563] buried, [6912] who had come [0935] and gone [1980] from the place [4725] of the holy, [6918] and they were forgotten [7911] in the city [5892] where they had so done: [6213] this [is] also vanity. [1892]
11
Because sentence [6599] against an evil [7451] work [4639] is not executed [6213] speedily, [4120] therefore the heart [3820] of the sons [1121] of men [0120] is fully set [4390] in them to do [6213] evil. [7451]
12
Though a sinner [2398] do [6213] evil [7451] an hundred [3967] times, and his [days] be prolonged, [0748] yet surely I know [3045] that it shall be well [2896] with them that fear [3373] God, [0430] which fear [3372] before [6440] him:
13
But it shall not be well [2896] with the wicked, [7563] neither shall he prolong [0748] [his] days, [3117] [which are] as a shadow; [6738] because he feareth [3373] not before [6440] God. [0430]
14
There is [3426] a vanity [1892] which is done [6213] upon the earth; [0776] that there be [3426] just [6662] [men], unto whom it happeneth [5060] according to the work [4639] of the wicked; [7563] again, there be [3426] wicked [7563] [men], to whom it happeneth [5060] according to the work [4639] of the righteous: [6662] I said [0559] that this also [1571] [is] vanity. [1892]
15
Then I commended [7623] mirth, [8057] because a man [0120] hath no better [2896] thing under the sun, [8121] than to eat, [0398] and to drink, [8354] and to be merry: [8055] for that shall abide [3867] with him of his labour [5999] the days [3117] of his life, [2416] which God [0430] giveth [5414] him under the sun. [8121]
16
When I applied [5414] mine heart [3820] to know [3045] wisdom, [2451] and to see [7200] the business [6045] that is done [6213] upon the earth: [0776] (for also [there is that] neither day [3117] nor night [3915] seeth [7200] sleep [8142] with his eyes:) [5869]
17
Then I beheld [7200] all the work [4639] of God, [0430] that a man [0120] cannot [3808] [3201] find out [4672] the work [4639] that is done [6213] under the sun: [8121] because though [0834] [7945] a man [0120] labour [5998] to seek [1245] [it] out, yet he shall not [3808] find [4672] [it]; yea farther; though a wise [2450] [man] think [0559] to know [3045] [it], yet shall he not [3808] be able [3201] to find [4672] [it].
