Ecclesiastes Chapter 10

, ; , . 1 Dead flies make the ointment of the perfumer fetid and putrid; so doth a little folly outweigh wisdom and honour.
, . 2 A wise man's understanding is at his right hand; but a fool's understanding at his left.
- () , ; , . 3 Yea also, when a fool walketh by the way, his understanding faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool.
- , -: , . 4 If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for gentleness allayeth great offences.
, --, . 5 There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, like an error which proceedeth from a ruler:
, ; , . 6 Folly is set on great heights, and the rich sit in low place.
, -; , -. 7 I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.
, ; , . 8 He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh through a fence, a serpent shall bite him.
, ; , . 9 Whoso quarrieth stones shall be hurt therewith; and he that cleaveth wood is endangered thereby.
- , - , , ; , . 10 If the iron be blunt, and one do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength; but wisdom is profitable to direct.
- , -; , . 11 If the serpent bite before it is charmed, then the charmer hath no advantage.
-, ; , . 12 The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.
-, ; , . 13 The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness; and the end of his talk is grievous madness.
, ; - , -, , . 14 A fool also multiplieth words; yet man knoweth not what shall be; and that which shall be after him, who can tell him?
, -- -, -. 15 The labour of fools wearieth every one of them, for he knoweth not how to go to the city.
- , ; , . 16 Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a boy, and thy princes feast in the morning!
, -; , . 17 Happy art thou, O land, when thy king is a free man, and thy princes eat in due season, in strength, and not in drunkenness!
, ; , . 18 By slothfulness the rafters sink in; and through idleness of the hands the house leaketh.
, ; , -. 19 A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh glad the life; and money answereth all things.
, -, , - : -, () . 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.
