(^) kjv@Ecclesiastes:9:13 @ This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me:
kjv@Ecclesiastes:9:14 @ There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it:
kjv@Ecclesiastes:9:15 @ Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:9:16 @ Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:9:17 @ The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:9:18 @ Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:1 @ Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:2 @ A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:3 @ Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:4 @ If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding pacifieth great offences.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:5 @ There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler:
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:6 @ Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:7 @ I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:8 @ He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:9 @ Whoso removeth stones shall be hurt therewith; and he that cleaveth wood shall be endangered thereby.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:10 @ If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:11 @ Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment; and a babbler is no better.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:12 @ The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:13 @ The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness: and the end of his talk is mischievous madness.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:14 @ A fool also is full of words: a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall be after him, who can tell him?
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:15 @ The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:16 @ Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning!
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:17 @ Blessed art thou, O land, when thy king is the son of nobles, and thy princes eat in due season, for strength, and not for drunkenness!
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:18 @ By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:19 @ A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:10:20 @ Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.
