  9 G5100 What G4050 advantage G3588 of the one G4160 doing things G1722 in G3739 which G1473 he G3449.1 makes an effort?
  10 G1492 I saw G4862 with G3588 the G4048.4 distraction G3739 which G1325 God gave G3588   G2316   G3588 to the G5207 sons G3588   G444 of men G3588   G4049 to be distracting G1722 to G1473 him.
  11 G4840.2 All G3739 which G4160 he made G2570 is good G1722 in G2540 his season; G1473   G2532 and G1065 indeed G4862 with G3588 the G165 eon G1325 he gave G1722 in G2588 their heart, G1473   G3704 so that G3361 [2should not G2147 3find G3588   G444 1man] G3588 the G4161 action G3739 which G4160 God did G3588   G2316   G575 from G746 beginning G3360 till G5056 end.
  12 G1097 I knew G3754 that G3756 there is not G1510.2.3   G18 good G1722 in G1473 them, G1508 except G3588   G2165 to be glad G2532 and G3588   G4160 to do G18 good G1722 in G2222 his life. G1473  
  13 G2532 And G1065 indeed, G3956 every G3588   G444 man G3739 who G2068 shall eat G2532 and G4095 shall drink G2532 and G1492 should behold G18 good G1722 in G3956 all G3449 his effort -- G1473   G1390 [2a gift G2316 3of God G1510.2.3 1it is].
  14 G1097 I knew G3754 that G3956 all things G3745 as many as G4160 God did, G3588   G2316   G1473 they G1510.8.3 shall be G1519 into G3588 the G165 eon. G1909 Unto G1473 them G3756 it is not G1510.2.3   G4369 to add, G2532 and G575 from G1473 them G3756 it is not G1510.2.3   G851 to remove. G2532 And G3588   G2316 God G4160 did G2443 that G5399 they should fear G575 from G4383 in front G1473 of him.
  15 G3588 The thing G1096 becoming, G2235 already G1510.2.3 is; G2532 and G3745 as much as G3588   G1096 there is to be, G2235 already G1096 has become; G2532 and G3588   G2316 God G2212 shall seek G3588 the thing G1377 pursuing.
  16 G2532 And G2089 still G1492 I beheld G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun G5117 the place G3588 of the G2920 of judgment -- G1563 there G3588 the G765 impious one; G2532 and G5117 a place G3588 of the G1342 just -- G1563 there was G3588 the G2152 pious one .
  17 G2036 I said G1473   G1722 in G2588 my heart, G1473   G4862 With G3588 the G1342 just G2532 and G4862 with G3588 the G765 impious, G2919 God will judge, G3588   G2316   G3754 for G2540 there is a season G3588   G3956 for every G4229 thing, G2532 and G1909 for G3956 every G3588   G4161 action G1563 there.
  18 G2036 I said G1473   G1722 in G2588 my heart, G1473   G4012 concerning G2981 the speech G3588 of the G5207 sons G3588   G444 of man, G3754 that G1252 [2will examine G1473 3them G3588   G2316 1God], G2532 and G3588   G1166 to show G3754 that G1473 they G2934 are beasts. G1510.2.6  
  19 G2532 And G1065 indeed G1473 to them G4876.2 the event G5207 of the sons G3588   G444 of man, G2532 and G4876.2 the event G3588 of the G2934 beast G4876.2 is [2event G1520 1one] G1473 to them; G5613 as G3588 the G2288 death G3778 of this one, G3779 so G2532 also G3588 the G2288 death G3778 of this other one; G2532 and G4151 [2breath G1520 1one] G3588   G3956 to all. G2532 And G5100 what G4052 abounded G3588 the G444 man G3844 more than G3588 the G2934 cattle? G3762 Nothing. G3754 For G3588 all things G3956   G3153 are folly.
  20 G3588 All things G3956   G4198 go G1519 to G5117 [2place G1520 1one]; G3588 all things G3956   G1096 came G575 from G3588 the G5522 dust, G2532 and G3588 all things G3956   G1994 return G1519 to G3588 the G5522 dust.
  21 G2532 And G5100 who G1492 has known G3588 the G4151 spirit G5207 of the sons G3588   G444 of man, G1487 if G305 it ascends G1473 itself G507 upward? G2532 and G3588 the G4151 spirit G3588 of the G2934 beast, G1487 if G2597 it goes down G1473 itself G2736 below G1519 into G3588 the G1093 earth?
  22 G2532 And G1492 I saw G3754 that G3756 there is no G1510.2.3   G18 good, G1508 except G3739 where G2165 [2shall be glad G444 1man] G1722 in G4161 his actions; G1473   G3754 for G1473 it is G3310 his portion. G1473   G3754 For G5100 who G71 will lead G1473 him G3588   G1492 to see G1722 in G3739 what G302 ever G1096 should take place G3326 after G1473 him?

Matthew 6:33

  33 G2212 But seek G1161   G4412 first G3588 the G932 kingdom G3588   G2316 of God G2532 and G3588   G1343 his righteousness! G1473   G2532 and G3778 all these things G3956   G4369 will be added G1473 to you.

James 1:2-4

  2 G3956 [2all G5479 3joy G2233 1Esteem it], G80 my brethren, G1473   G3752 whenever G3986 [3tests G4045 1you should fall into G4164 2various]!
  3 G1097 knowing G3754 that G3588 the G1383 proving G1473 [3of yours G3588 1of the G4102 2belief] G2716 manufactures G5281 endurance;
  4 G3588   G1161 and G5281 [2endurance G2041 5work G5046 4its perfect G2192 1let 3have]! G2443 that G1510.3 you should be G5046 perfect G2532 and G3648 entire, G1722 with G3367 nothing G3007 missing.

Proverbs 3:5

  5 G1510.5 Be G3982 yielding G1722 with G3650 your whole G2588 heart G1909 upon G2316 God, G1909 and upon G1161   G4674 your own G4678 wisdom G3361 be not encouraged! G1869  

Proverbs 3:13-18

  13 G3107 Blessed is G444 the man G3739 who G2147 found G4678 wisdom, G2532 and G2349 the mortal G3739 who G1492 beholds G5428 intelligence.
  14 G2908 For it is better G1063   G1473 to trade for her, G1710   G2228 than G5553 for gold G2532 and G694 silver G2344 treasures.
  15 G5093 [3more valuable than G1161 1And G1510.2.3 2she is G3037 5stones G4185 4very costly]; G3956 and every G1161   G5093 valuable thing G3756 [2not G514 3 equal 5worth G1473 4her G1510.2.3 1is].
  16 G3372 For length G1063   G979 of existence G2532 and G2094 years G2222 of life G1722 are in G3588   G1188 her right hand; G1473   G1722 and in G1161   G3588   G710 her left G1473   G4149 riches G2532 and G1391 glory. G1537 Out of G3588   G4750 her mouth G1473   G1607 goes forth G1343 in righteousness; G3551 and law G1161   G2532 and G1656 mercy G1909 [2upon G1100 3 her tongue G5409 1she wears].
  17 G3588   G3598 Her ways G1473   G3598 [2ways G2570 1 are good], G2532 and G3956 all G3588   G5147 her paths G1473   G1722 are in G1515 peace.
  18 G3586 [2a tree G2222 3of life G1510.2.3 1She is] G3956 to all G3588 the ones G472 holding G1473 her; G2532 and G3588 to the ones G1903.1 leaning G1909 upon G1473 her G5613 [2as G1909 3upon G2962 4 the lord G804 1 are safe].

Proverbs 4:7

  7 G746 [2 is the beginning G4678 1Wisdom], G2932 acquire G4678 wisdom! G2532 And G1722 in G3956 all G2934.3 of your possessing G1473   G2932 acquire G4907 understanding!

Proverbs 12:1-28

  1 G3588 The G25 one loving G3809 instruction G25 loves G144 perception; G3588 but the G1161   G3404 one detesting G1650 reproofs G878 is a fool.
  2 G2908 Better G3588 the one G2147 finding G5484 favor G3844 from G2962 the lord; G435 but a man G1161   G3892.1 who is a lawbreaker G3902.1 shall be silenced.
  3 G3756 [2will not G2734.2 3keep straight G444 1A man] G1537 by G459 a lawless deed; G3588 but the G1161   G4491 roots G3588 of the G1342 just G3756 shall not G1808 be lifted away.
  4 G1135 [2wife G406.1 1A courageous] G4735 is a crown G3588 to G435 her husband; G1473   G5618 but as G1161   G1722 [2in G3586 3wood G4663 1 the worm], G3779 so G435 [4 her husband G622 3destroys G1135 2wife G2555 1an evil doing].
  5 G3053 The devices G1342 of the just G2917 are true judgments; G2940.1 [3devise G1161 1but G765 2 the impious] G1388 treachery.
  6 G3056 The words G765 of the impious G1386 are deceitful G1519 for G129 blood; G4750 but the mouth G1161   G3717 of the upright G4506 shall rescue G1473 them.
  7 G3739 Of which G1437 ever time G4762 [3should be over turned G3588 1the G765 2impious] G853 he vanishes; G3624 but the houses G1161   G1342 of the just G3887 remain.
  8 G4750 The mouth G4908 of the discerning G1471.1 is lauded G5259 by G435 a man; G3575.1 but the dull of heart G1161   G3456 is sneered at.
  9 G2908 Better G435 a man G1722 with G819 dishonor G1398 serving G1438 himself, G2228 than G5092 [2value G1438 3on himself G4060 1one putting], G2532 and G4326 feeling want G740 of bread.
  10 G1342 A just one G3627 pities G5590 the lives G2934 of his cattle; G1473   G3588 but the G1161   G4698 feelings of compassion G3588 of the G765 impious G415 are unmerciful.
  11 G3588 The G2038 one working G3588   G1438 his own G1093 ground G1705 shall be filled up G740 with bread loaves; G3588 but the ones G1161   G1377 pursuing G3152 vain things G1729 are lacking G5424 of sense. G3739 The one who G1510.2.3 is G2238.1 pleasure-bent G1722 in G3631 wine drinking G1303.7 pastimes, G1722 [3in G3588   G1438 4his own G3794 5fortresses G2641 1shall leave behind G819 2dishonor].
  12 G1939 The desires G765 of the impious G2556 are evil things; G3588 but the G1161   G4491 roots G3588 of the G2152 pious G1722 are in G3794 fortresses.
  13 G1223 Through G266 the sin G5491 of the lips G1706 [2falls G1519 3into G3803 4snares G268 1a sinner]; G1628 [3flees G1161 1but G1537 4from G1473 5them G1342 2 the just].
  14 G575 From G2590 fruits G4750 of the mouth G5590 a soul G435 of a man G4130 shall be filled G18 of good things; G468 and a recompense G1161   G5491 of his lips G1473   G591 shall be rendered G1473 to him.
  15 G3598 The ways G878 of fools G3717 are straight G1799 before them; G1473   G1522 [3listens to G1161 1but G4823.1 4advice G4680 2 the wise].
  16 G878 A fool G831.2 daily G1804 publishes G3709 his anger; G1473   G2928 [3hides G1161 1but G3588   G1438 4his own G819 5dishonor G3835 2one astute].
  17 G1925 [3by displaying G4102 4trust G518 2reports G1342 1 The just man]; G3588 but the G1161   G3144 witness G3588 of the G94 unjust G1386 is deceitful.
  18 G1510.2.6 There are G3588 the ones G3004 speaking -- G5103.1 they pierce G5613 as G3162 a sword; G1100 but the tongues G1161   G4680 of the wise G2390 heal.
  19 G5491 [2lips G228 1True] G2734.2 straighten G3141 testimony; G3144 [3witness G1161 1but G5036 2a quick G1100 6tongue G2192 4has G94 5an unjust].
  20 G1388 Treachery G1722 is in G2588 the heart G5044.1 of the one contriving G2556 evils; G3588 but the ones G1161   G1014 wanting G1515 peace G2165 shall be glad.
  21 G3756 [3shall not please G700   G3588 4the G1342 5just G3762 1Anything G94 2unjust]; G3588 but the G1161   G765 impious G4130 shall be filled G2556 with bad things .
  22 G946 [3 are an abomination G2962 4 to the lord G5491 2lips G5571 1Lying]; G3588 but the G1161   G4160 one dealing G4102 in trust G1184 is accepted G3844 by G1473 him.
  23 G435 [2man G4908 1A discerning] G2362 is a throne G144 of perception; G2588 but the heart G1161   G878 of fools G4876 shall meet with G685 curses.
  24 G5495 The hand G1588 of chosen men G2902 shall prevail G2170.2 easily; G1386 but the deceitful G1161   G1510.8.6 will be G1519 for G4307.2 plunder.
  25 G5398 A fearful G3056 word G2588 [2 the heart G5015 1disturbs] G435 of a man; G31 [3message G1161 1but G18 2a good] G2165 gladdens G1473 him.
  26 G1921.2 [4arbitrator G1342 3a just G1438 5of himself G5384 1A friend G1510.8.3 2will be]; G264 but the ones sinning G1161   G2614 pursue G2556 evil things, G3588 and the G1161   G3598 way G3588 of the G765 impious G4105 misleads G1473 them.
  27 G3756 [2shall not G2013 3succeed in G1386 1A deceitful man] G2339 hunting; G2933 [5possession G1161 1but G5093 4 is an esteemed G435 3man G2513 2a pure].
  28 G1722 In G3598 the ways G1343 of righteousness G2222 is life; G3598 but the ways G1161   G3422.3 of the resentful G1519 are unto G2288 death.

Colossians 4:6

  6 G3588   G3056 with your word G1473   G3842 at all times G1722 in G5484 favor, G217 [2with salt G741 1being seasoned], G1492 to know G4459 how G1163 it is necessary for you G1473   G1520 [3one G1538 2each G611 1to answer].

2 Timothy 3:1-17

  1 G3778 But this G1097 know! G3754 that G1722 in G2078 the last G2250 days G1764 [3will be present G2540 2times G5467 1ill-tempered];
  2 G1510.8.6 [3will be G1063 1for G3588   G444 2men] G5367 fond of themselves, G5366 fond of money, G213 ostentatious, G5244 proud, G989 blasphemous, G1118 [2of parents G545 1resisting the persuasion], G884 ungracious, G462 unholy,
  3 G794 unaffectionate, G786 hostile, G1228 devilish, G193 immoderate, G434 untamed, G865 disliking good,
  4 G4273 betrayers, G4312 precipitous, G5187 being deluded, G5369 friends of pleasure G3123 rather G2228 than G5377 friends of God;
  5 G2192 having G3446 the appearance G2150 of piety, G3588   G1161 but G1411 [2its power G1473   G720 1denying]. G2532 Even G3778 these G665 turn away from!
  6 G1537 [2from out of G3778 3these G1063 1For] G1510.2.6 are G3588 the ones G1744 entering G1519 into G3588 the G3614 houses, G2532 and G162 capturing G3588 the G1133 vain women G4987 heaped G266 with sins, G71 being led G1939 [2desires G4164 1by various],
  7 G3842 at all times G3129 learning, G2532 and G3368 not at any time G1519 [3in G1922 4full knowledge G225 5of the truth G2064 2to come G1410 1being able].
  8 G3739 [2in which G5158 manner G1161 1And] G* Jannes G2532 and G* Jambres G436 opposed G* Moses, G3779 so G2532 also G3778 these G436 oppose G3588 the G225 truth; G444 men G2704 being corrupted G3588 in the G3563 mind, G96 unproved G4012 concerning G3588 the G4102 belief.
