11;</font><br><br> <font size="3" color="#2f2f4f" valign=top> 1 As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor. <br> 2 The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left. 3 Even as he walks along the road, the fool lacks sense and shows everyone how stupid he is. 4 If a ruler's anger rises against you, do not leave your post; calmness can lay great errors to rest. 5 There is an evil I have seen under the sun, the sort of error that arises from a ruler: 6 Fools are put in many high positions, while the rich occupy the low ones. 7 I have seen slaves on horseback, while princes go on foot like slaves. 8 Whoever digs a pit may fall into it; whoever breaks through a wall may be bitten by a snake. 9 Whoever quarries stones may be injured by them; whoever splits logs may be endangered by them. 10 If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed but skill will bring success. 11 If a snake bites before it is charmed, there is no profit for the charmer. 12 Words from a wise man's mouth are gracious, but a fool is consumed by his own lips. 13 At the beginning his words are folly; at the end they are wicked madness- 14 and the fool multiplies words. No one knows what is coming who can tell him what will happen after him? 15 A fool's work wearies him; he does not know the way to town. 16 Woe to you, O land whose king was a servant [a] and whose princes feast in the morning. 17 Blessed are you, O land whose king is of noble birth and whose princes eat at a proper time for strength and not for drunkenness. 18 If a man is lazy, the rafters sag; if his hands are idle, the house leaks. 19 A feast is made for laughter, and wine makes life merry, but money is the answer for everything. 20 Do not revile the king even in your thoughts, or curse the rich in your bedroom, because a bird of the air may carry your words, and a bird on the wing may report what you say.<br><br> Footnotes:<br> Ecclesiastes 10:16 Or king is a child <br><br> Ecclesiastes 11<br><br> Bread Upon the Waters <br> 1 Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again. <br> 2 Give portions to seven, yes to eight, for you do not know what disaster may come upon the land. 3 If clouds are full of water, they pour rain upon the earth. Whether a tree falls to the south or to the north, in the place where it falls, there will it lie. 4 Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap. 5 As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed [a] in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things. <br> 6 Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let not your hands be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well.<br><br> Remember Your Creator While Young <br> 7 Light is sweet, and it pleases the eyes to see the sun. 8 However many years a man may live, let him enjoy them all. But let him remember the days of darkness, for they will be many. Everything to come is meaningless. <br> 9 Be happy, young man, while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you to judgment. <br> 10 So then, banish anxiety from your heart and cast off the troubles of your body, for youth and vigor are meaningless.<br><br> Footnotes:<br> Ecclesiastes 11:5 Or know how life (or the spirit ) / enters the body being formed <br> <br> </font> <br> <table width="70%" align="center"> <tr><td> <a href="#Top">Top</a></td> </table> <font size="4" color="#2f2f4f">Ecclesiastes 12:1-14;</font><br><br> <font size="3" color="#2f2f4f" valign=top> 1 Remember your Creator <br> in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, "I find no pleasure in them"- <br> 2 before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars grow dark, and the clouds return after the rain; <br> 3 when the keepers of the house tremble, and the strong men stoop, when the grinders cease because they are few, and those looking through the windows grow dim; <br> 4 when the doors to the street are closed and the sound of grinding fades; when men rise up at the sound of birds, but all their songs grow faint; <br> 5 when men are afraid of heights and of dangers in the streets; when the almond tree blossoms and the grasshopper drags himself along and desire no longer is stirred. Then man goes to his eternal home and mourners go about the streets. <br> 6 Remember him before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well, 7 and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. <br> 8 "Meaningless! Meaningless!" says the Teacher. [a] "Everything is meaningless!"<br><br> The Conclusion of the Matter <br> 9 Not only was the Teacher wise, but also he imparted knowledge to the people. He pondered and searched out and set in order many proverbs. 10 The Teacher searched to find just the right words, and what he wrote was upright and true.<br> 11 The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails given by one Shepherd. 12 Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them. Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body. <br> 13 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. <br> 14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.<br><br> Footnotes:<br> Ecclesiastes 12:8 Or the leader of the assembly ; also in verses 9 and 10 <br> <br> </font> <table width="70%" align="center"> <tr><td> <a href="#Top">Top</a></td> </table> </td> <br> <td width="1%"></td> <td width="23%" valign=top> <p><font size="4" color="#2f2f4f">2 Corinthians 8:1-15;</font><br><br> <font size="3" color="#2f2f4f"> Generosity Encouraged <br> 1And now, brothers, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. 2Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. 3For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, 4they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints. 5And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God's will. 6So we urged Titus, since he had earlier made a beginning, to bring also to completion this act of grace on your part. 7But just as you excel in everything in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us[a] see that you also excel in this grace of giving. <br> 8I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others. 9For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. <br> 10And here is my advice about what is best for you in this matter: Last year you were the first not only to give but also to have the desire to do so. 11Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means. 12For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have. <br> 13Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. 14At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality, 15as it is written: "He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little."[b]<br> <br> </font> <table width="70%" align="center"> <tr><td> <a href="#Top">Top</a></td> </table> </p> </td> <td width="1%"></td> <td width="22%" valign=top bgcolor="#e6e8fa"> <font size="4" color="#2f2f4f">Psalm 49:1-20;</font><br> <font size="3" color="#2f2f4f"><br> For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. <br> 1 Hear this, all you peoples; listen, all who live in this world, <br> 2 both low and high, rich and poor alike: <br> 3 My mouth will speak words of wisdom; the utterance from my heart will give understanding. <br> 4 I will turn my ear to a proverb; with the harp I will expound my riddle: 5 Why should I fear when evil days come, when wicked deceivers surround me- 6 those who trust in their wealth and boast of their great riches? 7 No man can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for him- 8 the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough- 9 that he should live on forever and not see decay. 10 For all can see that wise men die; the foolish and the senseless alike perish and leave their wealth to others. 11 Their tombs will remain their houses [a] forever, their dwellings for endless generations, though they had [b] named lands after themselves. 12 But man, despite his riches, does not endure; he is [c] like the beasts that perish. 13 This is the fate of those who trust in themselves, and of their followers, who approve their sayings. Selah 14 Like sheep they are destined for the grave, [d] and death will feed on them. The upright will rule over them in the morning; their forms will decay in the grave, [e] far from their princely mansions. 15 But God will redeem my life [f] from the grave; he will surely take me to himself. Selah 16 Do not be overawed when a man grows rich, when the splendor of his house increases; 17 for he will take nothing with him when he dies, his splendor will not descend with him. 18 Though while he lived he counted himself blessed and men praise you when you prosper- 19 he will join the generation of his fathers, who will never see the light of life . <br> 20 A man who has riches without understanding is like the beasts that perish.<br><br> Footnotes:<br> Psalm 49:11 Septuagint and Syriac; Hebrew In their thoughts their houses will remain <br> Psalm 49:11 Or / for they have <br> Psalm 49:12 Hebrew; Septuagint and Syriac read verse 12 the same as verse 20. <br> Psalm 49:14 Hebrew Sheol ; also in verse 15 <br> Psalm 49:14 Hebrew Sheol ; also in verse 15 <br> Psalm 49:15 Or soul <br> </font> <table width="70%" align="center"> <tr><td> <a href="#Top">Top</a></td> </table> <br><br> <font color="#2f2f4f" size="4">Proverbs 22:20-21;</font><br> <font color="#2f2f4f" size="3"> 20 Have I not written thirty [b] sayings for you, sayings of counsel and knowledge, <br> 21 teaching you true and reliable words, so that you can give sound answers to him who sent you? <br> <br> </font> </p> <table width="70%" align="center"> <tr><td> <a href="#Top">Top</a></td> </table> </td></tr></table> </body> </html> </body> </html>
