1 G18 A good G3686 name G5228 is above G1637 [2oil G18 1good], G2532 and G2250 the day G3588 G2288 of death G5228 above G2250 the day G1078 of birth.
2 G18 It is good G4198 to go G1519 into G3624 a house G3997 of mourning, G2228 than G3754 than G4198 to go G1519 into G3624 a house G4224 of a banquet; G2530 in so far as G3778 this G5056 is the end G3956 of every G444 man; G2532 and G3588 the G2198 living man G1325 will give G18 good G1519 to G2588 his heart. G1473
3 G18 Better G2372 is rage G5228 than G1071 laughter, G3754 for G1722 by G2549 hurt G4383 of countenance G18.2 [2will be made better G2588 1 the heart].
4 G2588 The heart G4680 of the wise G1722 is in G3624 the house G3997 of mourning; G2532 and G2588 the heart G878 of fools G1722 is in G3624 the house G2167 of gladness.
5 G18 It is good G3588 G191 to hear G2008.1 the reproach G4680 of the wise, G5228 than G435 for a man G191 to hear G779.1 songs G878 of fools.
6 G5613 As G5456 the sound G3588 of the G173 thorn-bushes G5259 burning under G3588 the G3003.1 kettle, G3779 so G3588 the G1071 laughter, G3588 the one G3588 of the G878 fools; G2532 and G1065 indeed G3778 this G3153 is folly.
7 G3754 For G3588 G4811.2 extortion G4064 drives [2mad G4680 1 the wise man], G2532 and G622 destroys G3588 the G2588 [3heart G2103.2 1magnanimity G1473 2of his].
8 G18 Better G2078 the last G3056 of matters G5228 than G746 its beginning; G1473 G18 better G3115.1 the lenient G5228 than G5308 high G4151 spirit.
9 G3361 You should not G4692 hasten G1722 in G4151 your spirit G1473 G3588 G2373 to be enraged, G3754 for G2372 rage G1722 [2in G2859 3 the bosom G878 4of fools G373 1shall rest].
10 G3361 You should not G2036 say, G5100 What G1096 happened G3754 that G3588 the G2250 [2days G3588 G4387 1former] G1510.7.6 were G18 good G5228 over G3778 these? G3754 for G3756 [2not G1722 3in G4678 4wisdom G1905 1you asked] G4012 concerning G3778 this.
11 G18 [2 is good G4678 1Wisdom] G3326 with G2815.1 an allotment G2532 and G4050 abundance G3588 to the ones G2334 viewing G3588 the G2246 sun.
12 G3754 For G1722 [2in G4639 3its shadow G1473 G3588 G4678 1wisdom] G5613 is as G4639 the shadow G694 of silver; G2532 and G4050 the advantage G1108 of the knowledge G3588 G4678 of wisdom G2227 will restore to life G3588 the G3844 one having G1473 it.
13 G1492 Behold G3588 the G4161 actions G3588 G2316 of God! G3754 For G5100 who G1410 shall be able G3588 G2885 to adorn G3739 what G302 ever G3588 G2316 God G1294 should turn from G1473 him?
14 G1722 In G2250 the day G19 of goodness G1473 G2198 live G1722 in G18 good! G2532 and G1492 look out G1722 in G2250 the day G2549 of evil! G1492 Behold! G2532 and G1065 indeed G4862 with G3778 one G4859.1 [3harmony G3778 4with these G3588 G4160 2caused G3588 G2316 1God] G4012 concerning G2981 speech, G2443 that G3361 [2should not find G2147 G444 1man G3694 4after G1473 5him G3762 3anything].
15 G4840.2 All things G1492 I beheld G1722 in G2250 days G3153 of my folly. G1473 G1510.2.3 There is G1342 a just man G622 being destroyed G1722 in G1342 his justice, G1473 G2532 and G1510.2.3 there is G765 an impious man G3306 abiding G1722 in G2549 his evil. G1473
16 G3361 Do not G1096 become G1342 [2righteous G4183 1super], G3366 nor G4679 discern G4053 extra, G3379 lest at any time G1605 you should be overwhelmed!
17 G3361 You should not be G764 [2impious G4183 1super], G2532 and G3361 do not G1096 become G4642 hard, G2443 that G3361 you should not die G599 G1722 in G3739 G2540 your time! G1473
18 G18 It is good G3588 G472 for you to hold fast G1473 G1722 by G3778 this; G2532 and G1065 indeed G575 of G3778 this G3361 you should not G3392 defile G3588 G5495 your hand. G1473 G3754 For G5399 to the ones fearing G3588 G2316 God G1831 all things shall go forth. G3588 G3956
19 G3588 G4678 Wisdom G997 will give help G3588 to the G4680 wise one G5228 over G1176 ten G1850 exercising authority, G3588 of the ones G1510.6 being G1722 in G3588 the G4172 city.
20 G3754 For G444 [3man G3756 1there is no G1510.2.3 G1342 2just] G1722 on G3588 the G1093 earth G3739 who G4160 shall do G18 good G2532 and G3756 shall not G264 sin.
21 G2532 And G1065 indeed G1519 unto G3956 all G3056 the words G3739 which G2980 they shall speak, G3361 you should not G5087 put them to G2588 your heart, G1473 G3704 so that G3361 you should not G191 hear G3588 G1401 your servant G1473 G2672 cursing G1473 you.
22 G3754 For G4117.1 very often G4188.2 he will act wickedly G1473 against you, G2532 and G2526.2 returning G4183 many times G2559 he shall inflict G2588 your heart; G1473 G3754 that G5613 as G2532 also G1065 indeed G1473 you G2672 cursed G2087 others.
23 G3956 All G3778 these things G3985 I tested G1722 in G3588 G4678 wisdom. G2036 I said, G4679 I shall be discerning, G2532 but G1473 it G3118.2 was far G575 from G1473 me.
24 G3112 Far G5228 above G3739 what G1510.7.3 was, G2532 and G901 a deep G899 depth -- G5100 who G2147 shall find G1473 it?
25 G2944 [4circled about G1473 1I G2532 2and G3588 G2588 3my heart] G1473 G3588 G1097 to know, G2532 and G3588 G2679.2 to survey, G2532 and G3588 G2212 to seek G4678 wisdom, G2532 and G5586 the reckoning of things, G2532 and G3588 G1097 to know G765 the impious man's G877 foolishness, G2532 and G3791.1 rioting, G2532 and G4064.1 deviation.
26 G2532 And G2147 I find G1473 G1473 her G4089 more bitter G5228 than G2288 death -- G4862 with G3588 the G1135 woman G3748 in which G1510.2.3 [2is G2339.1 3snares G2532 4and G4522 5dragnets G2588 1her heart], G1473 G1199 and a bond G1519 in G5495 her hands. G1473 G18 He that is good G4253 before G4383 the face G2316 of God G1807 shall be delivered G575 from G1473 her; G2532 and G264 the one sinning G4815 will be seized G1722 with G1473 her.
27 G1492 Behold! G3778 this G2147 I found, G2036 said G3588 the G1577.2 ecclesiastic, G1520 counting one G3588 by G1520 one, G2147 to find G3053 a device,
28 G3739 which G1934 [2anxiously sought G3588 G5590 1my soul], G1473 G2532 and G3756 I did not G2147 find. G2532 Even G444 [2man G1520 1one] G575 from out of G5507 a thousand G2147 did I find. G2532 And G1135 a woman G1722 among G3956 all G3778 these G3756 I did not G2147 find.
29 G4133 Except G1492 behold! G3778 this G2147 I found, G3739 that G4160 God dealt G3588 G2316 G4862 with G3588 the G444 [2man G2112.3 1upright]. G2532 And G1473 they G2212 sought G3053 [2devices G4183 1many]. G5100 Who G1492 knows G4680 the wise? G2532 And G5100 who G1492 knows G3080 the loosening G4487 of a saying?
