7:3 Sorrow is better than laughter; for by the sadness of the face the heart is made good.
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 makes the wise man foolish; and a bribe destroys the understanding.
7:8 Better is the end of a thing than its beginning. The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
7:9 Don`t be hasty in your spirit to be angry, for anger rests in the bosom of fools.
7:10 Don`t say, "Why were the former days better than these?" For you do not ask wisely about this.
7:11 Wisdom is as good as an inheritance. Yes, it is more excellent for those who see the sun.
7:16 Don`t be overly righteous, neither make yourself overly wise. Why should you destroy yourself?
7:17 Don`t be too wicked, neither be foolish. Why should you die before your time?
7:19 Wisdom is a strength to the wise man more than ten rulers who are in a city.
7:20 Surely there is not a righteous man on earth, who does good and doesn`t sin.
7:21 Also don`t take heed to all words that are spoken, lest you hear your servant curse you;
7:22 for often your own heart knows that you yourself have likewise 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 exceedingly deep. Who can find it out?
7:25 I turned around, and my heart sought to know and to search out, and to seek wisdom and the scheme of things, and to know that wickedness is stupidity, and that foolishness is madness.
7:27 Behold, this have I found, says the Preacher, one to another, to find out the scheme;
7:28 which my soul still seeks; but I have not found: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.
