7:5 It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.
7:7 Surely extortion maketh the wise man foolish; and a bribe destroyeth the understanding.
7:8 Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof; [and] the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
7:9 Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry; for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
7:10 Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this.
7:11 Wisdom is as good as an inheritance; yea, more excellent is it for them that see the sun.
7:14 In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider; yea, God hath made the one side by side with the other, to the end that man should not find out anything [that shall be] after him.
7:16 Be not righteous overmuch; neither make thyself overwise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
7:17 Be not overmuch wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
7:19 Wisdom is a strength to the wise man more than ten rulers that are in a city.
7:20 Surely there is not a righteous man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
7:21 Also take not heed unto all words that are spoken, lest thou hear thy servant curse thee;
7:22 for oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others.
7:23 All this have I proved in wisdom: I said, I will be wise; but it was far from me.
7:24 That which is, is far off and exceeding deep; who can find it out?
7:25 I turned about, and my heart [was set] to know and to search out, and to seek wisdom and the reason [of things], and to know that wickedness is folly, and that foolishness is madness.
7:27 Behold, this have I found, saith the Preacher, [laying] one thing to another, to find out the account;
7:28 which my soul still seeketh, but I have not found: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.
