Ecclesiastes 10
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Like dead flies putrefy a vessel of sweet oil, a little foolishness is weightier than wisdom and than great glory 2The heart of the wise is at his right hand and the heart of a fool at his left 3And also a fool whenever he goes on the road, lacks his heart, and all that he thinks is foolishness 4If the spirit of a prince rises against you, do not leave your place, because healing dissolves many sins

5There is an evil I have seen under the sun, like an error that goes forth before a ruler 6For a fool sits in a high mighty place, and the rich will be seated in humility 7I have seen Servants upon horses and Rulers walking like Servants upon the Earth

8He who has dug a pit will fall into it and he that breaks a hedge, a snake will bite him 9He who removes stones will be hurt by them, and he who splits wood is wearied by it 10If the iron is dull and the surface is rough and it multiplies those killed, also wisdom is a profit for diligent ones 11And if a snake will bite without a charm, there is no profit in a charmer 12The words of the mouth of the wise one are glory, and the lips of a fool ruin him 13The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness, and the end of his mouth is evil shame 14And a fool multiplies words; a son of man does not know what has been, and who shows him what will be after him? 15The labors of fools weary them, for they do not know how to go to the city 16Woe to you, oh city, when your King is a boy and your princes eat at dawn! 17Your blessing, oh city, when your King is a son of the free and your Princes in their time eat with diligence and not with drunkenness! 18By slackness a roof will be lowered and by slackness of hands a house will drop 19For joy, bread and wine are made, and oil that gladdens life; and money humbles and seduces them in all things 20And also do not revile the King in your mind, and in your bedroom do not insult a rich man, because a bird of the sky will transmit your voice, and the Lord of the bird will show your statement
