Ecclesiastes 7:11-22 [ Verse 18 in Original: Hebrew / Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
11 Wisdom along with an inheritance is good And an advantage R161 to those who see the sun. 12 For wisdom R162 is protection F99 just as money is protection, F99 But the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom R163 preserves the lives of its possessors. 13 Consider the work R164 of God, For who is able R165 to straighten what He has bent? 14 In R166 the day of prosperity be happy, But in R167 the day of adversity consider-- God has made the one as well as the other So that man will not R168 discover anything that will be after him. 15 I have seen everything during my lifetime R169 F100 of futility; there is a R170 righteous man who perishes in his righteousness and there is a R171 wicked man who prolongs his life in his wickedness. 16 Do not be excessively righteous R172 and do not be R173 overly wise. Why should you ruin yourself? 17 Do not be excessively wicked and do not be a fool. Why should you die R174 before your time? 18 It is good that you grasp one thing and also not let F101 go of the other; for the one who fears R175 God comes forth with both F102 of them. 19 Wisdom R176 strengthens a wise man more than ten rulers who are in a city. 20 Indeed, there R177 is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins. 21 Also, do not take F103 seriously all words which are spoken, so that you will not hear your servant cursing R178 you. 22 For you F104 also have realized that you likewise have many times cursed others.

F99 Lit in a shadow
F100 Lit days
F101 Lit rest your hand
F102 Lit all
F103 Lit give your heart to
F104 Lit your heart knows also
