    8:1 Who [is] as the wise 2450 [man]? and who knoweth 3045 8802 the interpretation 6592 of a thing 1697? a man's 120 wisdom 2451 maketh his face 6440 to shine 215 8686, and the boldness 5797 of his face 6440 shall be changed 8132 8792.(the boldness: Heb. the strength)

    8:2 I [counsel thee] to keep 8104 8798 the king's 4428 commandment 6310, and [that] in regard 1700 of the oath 7621 of God 430.

    8:3 Be not hasty 926 8735 to go out 3212 8799 of his sight 6440: stand 5975 8799 not in an evil 7451 thing 1697; for he doeth 6213 8799 whatsoever pleaseth 2654 8799 him.

    8:4 Where the word 1697 of a king 4428 [is, there is] power 7983: and who may say 559 8799 unto him, What doest 6213 8799 thou?

    8:5 Whoso keepeth 8104 8802 the commandment 4687 shall feel 3045 8799 no evil 7451 thing 1697: and a wise man's 2450 heart 3820 discerneth 3045 8799 both time 6256 and judgment 4941.(shall…: Heb. shall know)

    8:6 Because to every purpose 2656 there is 3426 time 6256 and judgment 4941, therefore the misery 7451 of man 120 [is] great 7227 upon him.

    8:7 For he knoweth 3045 8802 not that which shall be: for who can tell 5046 8686 him when it shall be?(when…: or, how it shall be?)

    8:8 [There is] no man 120 that hath power 7989 over the spirit 7307 to retain 3607 8800 the spirit 7307; neither [hath he] power 7983 in the day 3117 of death 4194: and [there is] no discharge 4917 in [that] war 4421; neither shall wickedness 7562 deliver 4422 8762 those that are given 1167 to it.(discharge: or, casting off weapons)

    8:9 All this have I seen 7200 8804, and applied 5414 8800 my heart 3820 unto every work 4639 that is done 6213 8738 under the sun 8121: [there is] a time 6256 wherein one man 120 ruleth 7980 8804 over another to his own hurt 7451.

    8:10 And so 3651 I saw 7200 8804 the wicked 7563 buried 6912 8803, who had come 935 8804 and gone 1980 8762 from the place 4725 of the holy 6918, and they were forgotten 7911 8691 in the city 5892 where they had so done 6213 8804: this [is] also vanity 1892.

    8:11 Because sentence 6599 against an evil 7451 work 4639 is not executed 6213 8738 speedily 4120, therefore the heart 3820 of the sons 1121 of men 120 is fully set 4390 8804 in them to do 6213 8800 evil 7451.

    8:12 Though a sinner 2398 8802 do 6213 8802 evil 7451 an hundred times 3967, and his [days] be prolonged 748 8688, yet surely I know 3045 8802 that it shall be well 2896 with them that fear 3373 God 430, which fear 3372 8799 before 6440 him:

    8:13 But it shall not be well 2896 with the wicked 7563, neither shall he prolong 748 8686 [his] days 3117, [which are] as a shadow 6738; because he feareth 3373 not before 6440 God 430.

    8:14 There is 3426 a vanity 1892 which is done 6213 8738 upon the earth 776; that there be just 6662 [men], unto whom it happeneth 5060 8688 according to the work 4639 of the wicked 7563; again, there be 3426 wicked 7563 [men], to whom it happeneth 5060 8688 according to the work 4639 of the righteous 6662: I said 559 8804 that this also 1571 [is] vanity 1892.

    8:15 Then I commended 7623 8765 mirth 8057, because a man 120 hath no better thing 2896 under the sun 8121, than to eat 398 8800, and to drink 8354 8800, and to be merry 8055 8800: for that shall abide 3867 8799 with him of his labour 5999 the days 3117 of his life 2416, which God 430 giveth 5414 8804 him under the sun 8121.

    8:16 When I applied 5414 8804 mine heart 3820 to know 3045 8800 wisdom 2451, and to see 7200 8800 the business 6045 that is done 6213 8738 upon the earth 776: (for also [there is that] neither day 3117 nor night 3915 seeth 7200 8802 sleep 8142 with his eyes 5869:)

    8:17 Then I beheld 7200 8804 all the work 4639 of God 430, that a man 120 cannot 3201 8799 find out 4672 8800 the work 4639 that is done 6213 8738 under the sun 8121: because 834 though 7945 a man 120 labour 5998 8799 to seek [it] out 1245 8763, yet he shall not find 4672 8799 [it]; yea further; though a wise 2450 [man] think 559 8799 to know 3045 8800 [it], yet shall he not be able 3201 8799 to find 4672 8800 [it].
