    7:1 A good name 8034 [is] better 2896 than precious 2896 ointment 8081; and the day 3117 of death 4194 than the day 3117 of one's birth 3205 8736.

    7:2 [It is] better 2896 to go 3212 8800 to the house 1004 of mourning 60, than to go 3212 8800 to the house 1004 of feasting 4960: for 834 that [is] the end 5490 of all men 120; and the living 2416 will lay 5414 8799 [it] to his heart 3820.

    7:3 Sorrow 3708 [is] better 2896 than laughter 7814: for by the sadness 7455 of the countenance 6440 the heart 3820 is made better 3190 8799.(Sorrow: or, Anger)

    7:4 The heart 3820 of the wise 2450 [is] in the house 1004 of mourning 60; but the heart 3820 of fools 3684 [is] in the house 1004 of mirth 8057.

    7:5 [It is] better 2896 to hear 8085 8800 the rebuke 1606 of the wise 2450, than for a man 376 to hear 8085 8802 the song 7892 of fools 3684.

    7:6 For as the crackling 6963 of thorns 5518 under a pot 5518, so [is] the laughter 7814 of the fool 3684: this also [is] vanity 1892.(crackling: Heb. sound)

    7:7 Surely oppression 6233 maketh a wise man 2450 mad 1984 8779; and a gift 4979 destroyeth 6 8762 the heart 3820.

    7:8 Better 2896 [is] the end 319 of a thing 1697 than the beginning 7225 thereof: [and] the patient 750 in spirit 7307 [is] better 2896 than the proud 1362 in spirit 7307.

    7:9 Be not hasty 926 8762 in thy spirit 7307 to be angry 3707 8800: for anger 3708 resteth 5117 8799 in the bosom 2436 of fools 3684.

    7:10 Say 559 8799 not thou, What is [the cause] that the former 7223 days 3117 were better 2896 than these? for thou dost not enquire 7592 8804 wisely 2451 concerning this.(wisely: Heb. out of wisdom)

    7:11 Wisdom 2451 [is] good 2896 with an inheritance 5159: and [by it there is] profit 3148 to them that see 7200 8802 the sun 8121.(good…: or, as good as an inheritance, yea, better too)

    7:12 For wisdom 2451 [is] a defence 6738, [and] money 3701 [is] a defence 6738: but the excellency 3504 of knowledge 1847 [is, that] wisdom 2451 giveth life 2421 8762 to them that have 1167 it.(defence: Heb. shadow)

    7:13 Consider 7200 8798 the work 4639 of God 430: for who can 3201 8799 make [that] straight 8626 8763, which he hath made crooked 5791 8765?

    7:14 In the day 3117 of prosperity 2896 be joyful 2896, but in the day 3117 of adversity 7451 consider 7200 8798: God 430 also hath set 6213 8804 the one over against 5980 the other, to the end 1700 that man 120 should find 4672 8799 nothing 3972 after 310 him.(set: Heb. made)

    7:15 All [things] have I seen 7200 8804 in the days 3117 of my vanity 1892: there is 3426 a just 6662 [man] that perisheth 6 8802 in his righteousness 6664, and there is a wicked 7563 [man] that prolongeth 748 8688 [his life] in his wickedness 7451.

    7:16 Be not righteous 6662 over much 7235 8687; neither make thyself over 3148 wise 2449 8691: why shouldest thou destroy 8074 8709 thyself?(destroy…: Heb. be desolate?)

    7:17 Be not over much 7235 8687 wicked 7561 8799, neither be thou foolish 5530: why shouldest thou die 4191 8799 before thy time 6256?(before…: Heb. not in thy time?)

    7:18 [It is] good 2896 that thou shouldest take hold 270 8799 of this; yea, also from this 2088 withdraw 3240 8686 not thine hand 3027: for he that feareth 3373 God 430 shall come forth 3318 8799 of them all.

    7:19 Wisdom 2451 strengtheneth 5810 8799 the wise 2450 more than ten 6235 mighty 7989 [men] which are in the city 5892.

    7:20 For [there is] not a just 6662 man 120 upon earth 776, that doeth 6213 8799 good 2896, and sinneth 2398 8799 not.

    7:21 Also take 5414 8799 no heed 3820 unto all words 1697 that are spoken 1696 8762; lest thou hear 8085 8799 thy servant 5650 curse 7043 8764 thee:(take…: Heb. give not thine heart)

    7:22 For oftentimes 6471 7227 also thine own heart 3820 knoweth 3045 8804 that thou thyself likewise hast cursed 7043 8765 others 312.

    7:23 All this 2090 have I proved 5254 8765 by wisdom 2451: I said 559 8804, I will be wise 2449 8799; but it [was] far 7350 from me.

    7:24 That which is far off 7350, and exceeding deep 6013, who can find it out 4672 8799?

    7:25 I applied 5437 8804 mine heart 3820 to know 3045 8800, and to search 8446 8800, and to seek out 1245 8763 wisdom 2451, and the reason 2808 [of things], and to know 3045 8800 the wickedness 7562 of folly 3689, even of foolishness 5531 [and] madness 1947:(I applied…: Heb. I and mine heart compassed)

    7:26 And I find 4672 8802 more bitter 4751 than death 4194 the woman 802, whose heart 3820 [is] snares 4685 and nets 2764, [and] her hands 3027 [as] bands 612: whoso pleaseth 2896 6440 God 430 shall escape 4422 8735 from her; but the sinner 2398 8802 shall be taken 3920 8735 by her.(whoso…: Heb. he that is good before God)

    7:27 Behold 7200 8798, this have I found 4672 8804, saith 559 8804 the preacher 6953, [counting] one 259 by one 259, to find out 4672 8800 the account 2808:(counting…: or, weighing one thing after another, to find out the reason)

    7:28 Which yet my soul 5315 seeketh 1245 8765, but I find 4672 8804 not: one 259 man 120 among a thousand 505 have I found 4672 8804; but a woman 802 among all those have I not found 4672 8804.

    7:29 Lo 7200 8798, this only 905 have I found 4672 8804, that God 430 hath made 6213 8804 man 120 upright 3477; but they have sought out 1245 8765 many 7227 inventions 2810.
