Bible verses about "enthusiasm" | Leeser

Proverbs 19:2-12

2 Also in the want of knowledge in the soul there is nothing good; and he that hasteneth with his feet misseth the right path. 3 The folly of a man perverteth his way, and against the Lord will his heart rage. 4 Wealth bringeth many friends; but the poor becometh separated from his only friend. 5 A false witness shall not remain unpunished, and he that uttereth lies shall not escape. 6 Many will entreat the favor of the liberal man; and every one is the friend to him that bestoweth gifts. 7 All the brothers of the poor hate him: how much more do his friends go far away from him! he pursueth their promises; but these are all that he hath. 8 He that getteth intelligence loveth his own soul: he that guardeth understanding will find happiness. 9 A false witness shall not remain unpunished, and he that uttereth lies shall perish. 10 Delicacy is not seemly for a fool: much less for a servant to have rule over princes. 11 It is intelligence in man to be slow in his anger, and it is his glory to pass over a transgression. 12 Like the roaring of a young lion is the wrath of a king: as dew upon the herbs is his favor.

Jeremiah 48:10

10 Cursed be he that doth the work of the Lord negligently, and cursed be he that withholdeth his sword from blood.

Ecclesiastes 9:10

10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do with thy might, that do; for there is no work, nor experience, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the nether world, whither thou goest.—
