Ecclesiastes 7:1-29
1. A good name is more worth than a precious ointment, and the day of death is better than the day of birth.
2. It is better to go into an house of mourning, than into a banquet(bancket) house. For there is the end of all men, and he that is living, taketh it to heart.
3. It is better to be sorry than to laugh, for when the countenance is heavy, the heart is joyful.
4. The heart of the wise is in the mourning house, but the heart of the foolish is in the house of mirth.
5. It is better to give ear to the chastening of a wise man, than to hear the song of fools.
6. For the laughting of fools is like the crackling of thorns under a pot. And that is but a vain thing.
7. Who so doeth wrong, maketh a wise man to go out of his wit, and destroyeth a gentle heart.
8. The end of a thing is better than the beginning. The patient of spirit is better than the high minded.
9. Be not hastily angry in thy mind, for wrath resteth in the bosom of a fool.
10. Say not thou: What is the cause that the days of the old time were better, than they that be now? For that were no wise question.
11. Wisdom is better than riches, yea much more worth than the eyesight.
12. For wisdom defendeth as well as money, and the excellent knowledge and wisdom giveth life to him that have it in possession.
13. Consider the work of God, how that no man can make the thing straight, which he maketh crooked.
14. Use well the time of prosperity and remember the time of misfortune: For God maketh one by the other, so that a man can find nothing else.
15. These two things also have I considered in the time of vanity: that the just man perisheth for his righteousness' sake, and the ungodly liveth in his wickedness.
16. Therefore be thou neither too righteous nor over wise, that thou perish not:
17. be neither too unrighteous also nor too foolish, lest thou die before thy time.
18. It is good for thee to take hold of this, and not to let that go out of thy hand. For he that feareth God shall escape them all.
19. Wisdom giveth more courage unto the wise, than ten mighty men of the city.
20. For there is not one just upon earth, that doth good, and sinneth not.
21. Take not heed unto every word that is spoken, lest thou hear thy servant curse thee:
22. For thine own heart knoweth, that thou thyself also hast oft times spoken evil by other men.
23. All these things have I proved because of wisdom: For I thought to be wise, but she went farther from me than she was before,
24. yea and so deep that I might not reach unto her.
25. I applied my mind also to knowledge, and to seek out science, wisdom and understanding: to know the foolishness of the ungodly, and the error of doting fools.
26. And I found, that a woman is bitterer than death: for she is a very angle, her heart is a net, and her hands are chains. Who so pleaseth God shall escape from her, but the sinner will be taken with her.
27. Behold (sayeth the preacher) this have I diligently searched out and proved, that I might come by knowledge: which as yet I seek, and find it not.
28. Among a thousand men I have found one, but not one woman among all.
29. Lo, this onely have I found, that God made man just and right, but they seek divers sotylties,(subtleties or sodalities)

Psalms 102:1-5
1. A prayer of the afflicted, when he was in woe, and poured out his complaint before the LORD. Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my crying come unto thee.
2. Hide not thy face from me in the time of my trouble incline thine ears unto me when I call, O hear me and that right soon.
3. For my days are consumed away like smoke, and my bones are brent up as it were a fire brand.
4. My heart is smitten down and withered like grass, so that I forget to eat my bread.
5. For the voice of my groaning, my bone will scarce cleave to my flesh.

Proverbs 24:7-9
7. Wisdom is an high thing, yea even to the fool, for he dare not open his mouth in the gate.
8. He that imagineth mischief, may well be called an ungracious person.
9. The thought of the foolish is sin, and the scornful is an abomination unto men.

1 Corinthians 10:1-18
1. Brethren I would not that ye should be ignorant of this, how that our fathers were all under a cloud, and all passed thorow the sea,
2. and were all baptised under Moses in the cloud and in the sea:
3. and did all eat of one spiritual meat,
4. and did all drink of one manner of spiritual drink. And they drank of that spiritual rock that followed them, which rock was Christ.
5. But in many of them had God no delight. For they were overthrown(smitten down) in the wilderness.
6. These are examples to us that we should not lust after evil things, as they lusted.
7. Neither be ye worshippers of images as were some of them according as it is written: The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up again to play.
8. Neither let us commit fornication(whoredom) as some of them committed fornication,(whoredom) and were destroyed(fell) in one day twenty three thousand.
9. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them tempted and were destroyed of serpents.
10. Neither murmur ye as some of them murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
11. All these things happened upon them for ensamples, and were written to put us in remembrance,(to warn us) whom the ends of the world are come upon.
12. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth, take heed lest he fall.
13. There hath none other temptation taken you,(yet no temptation overtaken you) but such as followeth the nature of man. God is faithful, which shall not suffer you to be tempted above your strength: but shall in the midst of the temptation make a way to escape out.(that ye may bear it)
14. Wherefore my dear beloved, flee from worshipping of idols.
15. I speak as unto them which have discretion, judge ye what I say.
16. Is not the cup of blessing which we bless,(thanksgiving wherewith we give thanks) partaking of the blood of Christ? is not the bread which we break, partaking of the body of Christ?
17. because that we (though we be many) yet are one bread, and one body inasmuch as we all are partakers of one bread. (and of one cup)
18. Behold Israel which walketh carnally.(after the flesh) Are not they which eat of the sacrifice, partakers of the altar?
