Ecclesiastes 8

  1 G4678 [2wisdom G444 1A man's] G5461 will lighten G4383 his countenance; G1473   G2532 and G335.1 an impudent man's G4383 countenance G1473   G3404 will be detested.
  2 G4750 [2 the mouth G935 3of a king G5442 1Watch]! G2532 even G4012 because of G3056 the word G3727 of the oath G2316 of God.
  3 G3361 [2not G4704 3hurriedly G575 5from G4383 6his face G1473   G4198 1You should 4go]. G3361 You should not G2476 stand G1722 in G3056 [2matter G4190 1an evil], G3754 for G3739 what G302 ever G2309 he wants, G4160 he does.
  4 G2531 As G935 a king G1850 exercising authority, G2532 and G5100 who G2046 shall say G1473 to him, G5100 What G4160 do you do?
  5 G3588 The G5442 one keeping G1785 the commandment G3756 shall not G1097 know G4487 [2matter G4190 1an evil]. G2532 And G2540 [4 the time G2920 5of judgment G1097 3knows G2588 1 the heart G4680 2of the wise].
  6 G3754 For G3956 every G4229 thing G1510.2.3 there is G2540 a season G2532 and G2920 judgment; G3754 for G1108 knowledge G3588   G444 of man G4183 is vast G1909 unto G1473 him.
  7 G3754 For G3756 there is not one G1510.2.3   G1097 knowing G5100 what G3588   G1510.10 shall be being; G3754 for G2531 as G1510.8.3 it will be, G5100 who G312 shall announce G1473 to him?
  8 G3756 There is no G1510.2.3   G444 man G1850 exercising authority G1722 over G4151 spirit G3588   G2967 to restrain G4862 with G3588 the G4151 spirit; G2532 and G3756 there is no G1510.2.3   G1850 exercising authority G1722 in G2250 the day G2288 of death; G2532 and G3756 there is no G1510.2.3   G651 discharge G1722 in G2250 the day G4171 of battle; G2532 and G3756 [2shall not G1295 3preserve G763 1impiety] G3588 the thing G3844 for G1473 her.
  9 G2532 And G4840.2 all G3778 this G1492 I beheld; G2532 and G1325 I gave G3588   G2588 my heart G1473   G1519 to G3956 every G3588   G4161 action G3739 which G4160 I had done G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun; G3588 the things, G3745 as much as G1850 [2exercises authority G444 1a man] G1722 to G444 a man G3588   G2559 to inflict evil G1473 on him.
  10 G2532 And G5119 then G1492 I beheld G765 the impious G1519 [2into G5028 3 the tombs G1521 1being brought], G2532 and G1537 from out of G3588 the G39 holy place; G2532 and G4198 they went G2532 and G1867 were praised G1722 in G3588 the G4172 city, G3754 because G3779 they did thus. G4160   G2532 And G1065 indeed G3778 this G3153 is folly.
  11 G3754 Because G3756 there is no G1510.2.3   G1096 existing G496.4 objection G575 for G3588 the ones G4160 doing G3588   G4190 evil G5036 quickly, G1223 therefore G3778 by this G4135 [4have full assurance G2588 1 the heart G5207 2of the sons G3588   G444 3of man] G1722 in G1473 themselves G3588   G4160 to do G3588   G4190 evil.
  12 G3739 The one who G264 sinned G4160 did G3588   G4190 evil G575 from G5119 then, G2532 and G575 of G3117.1 their duration. G1473   G3754 For G2532 also G1065 even G1097 I know G1473   G3754 that G1510.2.3 there is G18 good G3588 to the G5399 ones fearing G3588   G2316 God, G3704 so that G5399 they should fear G575 from G4383 in front G1473 of him.
  13 G2532 But G18 [2good G3756 1it will not be] G1510.8.3   G3588 to the G765 impious, G2532 and G3756 he shall not G3118.2 prolong G2250 his days G1722 which are as G4639 a shadow; G3739 for G3756 he is not G1510.2.3   G5399 fearing G575 from G4383 before G3588   G2316 God.
  14 G1510.2.3 There is G3153 a folly G3739 which G4160 is done G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 earth; G3754 that G1510.2.6 there are G1342 just ones G3754 that G5348 attain G4314 unto G1473 them, G5613 as G4161 the action G3588 of the G765 impious; G2532 and G1510.2.6 there are G765 impious G3754 that G5348 attain G4314 to G1473 them, G5613 as G4161 the action G3588 of the G1342 just. G2036 I said G3754 that, G2532 Indeed also G1065   G3778 this G3153 is folly.
  15 G2532 And G1867 I praised G1473   G4862 with G3588 the G2167 gladness, G3754 because G3756 there is no G1510.2.3   G18 good thing G3588 to G444 man G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun, G3754 were it not G1508   G3588   G2068 to eat, G2532 and G3588   G4095 to drink, G2532 and G3588   G2165 to be glad. G2532 And G1473 it G4850.2 will adhere G1473 to him G1722 in G3449 his effort G1473   G2250 all the days G2222 of his life, G1473   G3739 as G1325 [2gave G1473 3to him G3588   G2316 1God] G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun.
  16 G1722 Whereupon G3739   G1325 I gave G3588   G2588 my heart G1473   G3588   G1097 to know G3588   G4678 wisdom, G2532 and G3588   G1492 to behold G3588 the G4048.4 distraction G3588   G4160 being done G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 earth. G3754 For G2532 also G1722 at G2250 day G2532 and G1722 at G3571 night G5258 [3sleep G1722 4with G3788 5his eyes G1473   G3756 1 a person is not G1510.2.3   G991 2seeing].
  17 G2532 And G1492 I beheld G4840.2 all G3588 the G4161 actions G3588   G2316 of God, G3754 that G3756 [2shall not G1410 3be able G444 1man] G3588   G2147 to find G4862 out G3588 the G4161 action G3588   G4160 being done G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun. G3745 As long G302 as G3449.1 [2should make an effort G3588   G444 1man] G3588   G2212 to seek, G2532 even G3756 he shall not find it . G2147   G2532 And G1065 indeed, G3745 as long G302 as G2036 [2should speak G3588   G4680 1 the wise] G3588   G1097 to know it, G3756 he shall not G1410 be able G3588   G2147 to find it . G3754 For G4840.2 all G3778 this G1325 I gave G1519 to G2588 my heart, G1473   G2532 and G2588 my heart G1473   G4840.2 [2all G1492 1beheld] G3778 this.
