Ecclesiastes Chapter 4

, --, , ; , , , . 1 But I returned and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun; and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power, but they had no comforter.
-, ---, . 2 Wherefore I praised the dead that are already dead more than the living that are yet alive;
, -- -, : - - , . 3 but better than they both is he that hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.
--, - -- -, ; - , . 4 Again, I considered all labour and all excelling in work, that it is a man's rivalry with his neighbour. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.
-, -. 5 The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.
, -- , . 6 Better is a handful of quietness, than both the hands full of labour and striving after wind.
, . 7 Then I returned and saw vanity under the sun.
-, ---- (), - ; , - --- , . 8 There is one that is alone, and he hath not a second; yea, he hath neither son nor brother; yet is there no end of all his labour, neither is his eye satisfied with riches: 'for whom then do I labour, and bereave my soul of pleasure?' This also is vanity, yea, it is a grievous business.
, -: - , . 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
-, -; , , , . 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him that is alone when he falleth, and hath not another to lift him up.
- , ; , . 11 Again, if two lie together, then they have warmth; but how can one be warm alone?
-, --, ; , , , . 12 And if a man prevail against him that is alone, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
, -- , - . 13 Better is a poor and wise child than an old and foolish king, who knoweth not how to receive admonition any more.
- , : , . 14 For out of prison he came forth to be king; although in his kingdom he was born poor.
, --, , -- , . 15 I saw all the living that walk under the sun, that they were with the child, the second, that was to stand up in his stead.
- -, - -- , -: -- , . 16 There was no end of all the people, even of all them whom he did lead; yet they that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and a striving after wind.
(), - , , : - , . 17 Guard thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be ready to hearken: it is better than when fools give sacrifices; for they know not that they do evil.
