Ecclesiastes 8:1-17
1. where as no man hath wisdom and understanding, to give answer there unto. Wisdom maketh a man's face to shine, but malice putteth it out of favour.
2. Keep the king's commandment (I warn thee) and the oath that thou hast made unto God.
3. Be not hasty to go out of his sight, and see thou continue in no evil thing: for whatsoever it pleaseth him, that doeth he.
4. Like as when a king giveth a charge, his commandment is mighty: Even so whom may say unto him: What doest thou?
5. Whoso keepeth the commandment, shall feel no harm: but a wise man's heart discerneth time and manner:
6. For everything will have opportunity and judgment, and this the thing that maketh men full of carefulness and sorrow.
7. And why? A man knoweth not what is for to come, for who will tell him?
8. Neither is there any man that hath power over the spirit, to keep still the spirit, nor to have any power in the time of death: it is not he also that can make an end of the battle, neither may ungodliness deliver him that meddleth withall.
9. All these things have I considered, and applied my mind unto every work that is under the Son: how one man hath lordship upon another to his own harm.
10. For I have oft seen the ungodly brought to their graves, and fallen down from the high and glorious place: insomuch that they were forgotten in the city, where they were had in so high and great reputation. This is also a vain thing.
11. Because now that evil works are not hastily punished, the heart of man giveth himself over unto wickedness.
12. But though an evil person offend an hundredth times, and have a long life: yet am I sure, that it shall go well with them that fear God, because they have him before their eyes.
13. Again, as for the ungodly, it shall not be well with him, neither shall he prolong his days: but even as a shadow, so shall he be that feareth not God.
14. Yet is there a vanity upon earth: there be just men, unto whom it happeneth, as though they had the works of the ungodly: Again, there be ungodly, with whom it goeth as though they had the works of the righteous. This me think also a vain thing.
15. Therefore I commend gladness, because a man hath no better thing under the Son, than to eat and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall he have of his labour all the days of his life, which God giveth him under the Son.
16. When I applied my mind to learn wisdom, and to know the travail that is in the world (and that of such a fashion, that I suffered not my eyes to sleep neither day nor night)
17. I understood of all the works of God, that it is not possible for a man, to attain unto works that are done under the Son: and though he bestow his labour to seek them out, yet can he not reach unto them: yea though a wise man would undertake to know them, yet might he not find them.

Ecclesiastes 9:1-18
1. For all these things purposed I in my mind to seek out. The righteous and wise, yea and their works(servants) also are in the hand of God: and there is no man that knoweth either the love or hate of the thing that he hath before him.(which is albefore him)
2. It happeneth unto one as unto another: It goeth with the righteous as with the ungodly: with the good and clean as with the unclean: with him that offereth as with him that offereth not: like as it goeth with the virtuous, so goeth it also with the sinner: As it happeneth unto the perjured, so happeneth it also unto him that is afraid to be foresworn.(man sworn)
3. Among all things that come to pass under the Son, this is a mystery, that it happeneth unto all alike. This is the cause also that the hearts of men are full of wickedness, and mad foolishness is in their hearts, as long as they live, until they die.
4. And why? As long as a man liveth, he is careless: for a quick dog (say they) is better than a dead lion:
5. for they that be living, know that they shall die: but they that be dead, know nothing, neither deserve they anymore. For their memorial is forgotten,
6. so that they be neither loved, hated nor envied: neither have they anymore part in the world, in all that is done under the Son.
7. Go thou thy way then, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with gladness, for thy works please God.
8. Let thy garments be alway white, and let thy head want none ointment.
9. Use thy self to live joyfully with thy wife whom thou lovest, all the days of thy life, which is but vanity, that God hath given thee under the Son, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, of all thy labor and travail that thou takest under the Son.
10. Whatsoever thou takest in hand to do, that do with all thy power: for among the dead, where thou goest unto, there is neither work, counsel, knowledge nor wisdom.
11. So I turned me unto other things under the Son, and I saw, that in running, it helpeth not to be swift: in battle, it helpeth not to be strong: to feeding, it helpeth not to be wise: to riches, it helpeth not to be suttle: to be had in favour, it helpeth not to be cunning: but that all lieth in time and fortune.
12. For man knoweth not his time, but like as the fish are taken with the angle and as the birds are catched with the snare: Even so are men taken in the perilous time, when it cometh suddenly upon them.
13. This wisdom have I seen also under the Son, and me thought it a great thing.
14. There was a little city, and a few men within it: so there came a great king and besieged it, and made great bulwarks against it.
15. And in the city there was found a poor man, (but he was wise) which with his wisdom delivered the city: yet was there no body, that had any respect for such a simple man.
16. Then said I: Wisdom is better than strength. Nevertheless, a simple man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
17. A wise man's counsel that is followed in silence, is far above the crying of a captain among fools.
18. For wisdom is better than harness: but one unthrifty alone destroyeth much good.

Ecclesiastes 10:1-20
1. Dead flies that corrupt sweet ointment and make it to stink, are something more worth than the wisdom and honor of a fool.
2. A wise man's heart is upon the right hand, but a fool's heart is upon the left.
3. A doting fool thinketh, that every man doth as foolishly as himself.
4. If a principal spirit be given thee to bear rule, be not negligent then in thine office: for so shall great wickedness be put down, as it were with a medicine.
5. Another plague is there, which I have seen under the son: namely, the ignorance that is commonly among princes:
6. in that a fool setteth in great dignity, and the rich are sit down beneath:
7. I see servants ride upon horses, and princes going upon their feet as it were servants.
8. But he that diggeth up a pit, shall fall therein himself: and whoso breaketh down the hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
9. Whoso removeth stones shall have travail withal: and he that heweth wood, shall be hurt therewith.
10. When an iron is blunt, and the point not sharpened, it must be whet again, and that with might: Even so doth wisdom follow diligence.
11. A babbler of his tongue is no better than a serpent that stingeth without hissing.
12. The words out of a wise man's mouth are gracious, but the lips of a fool will destroy himself.
13. The beginning of his talking is foolishness, and the last word of his mouth is great madness.
14. A fool is so full of words, that a man can not tell what end he shall make: who will then warn him to make a conclusion?
15. The labour of the foolish is grievous unto them, while they know not how to go in to the city.
16. Woe be unto thee (O thou realm and land) whose king is but a child, and whose princes are early at their banquettes.
17. But well is thee (O thou realm and land) whose king is come of nobles, and whose princes eat in due season, for strength and not for lust.
18. Thorow slothfulness the balks fall down, and thorow idle hands it raineth in at the house.
19. Meat maketh men to laugh, and wine maketh them merry: but unto money are all things obedient.
20. Wish the king no evil in thy thought, and speak no hurt of the rich in thy privy chamber: for a bird of the air shall betray thy voice, and with her feathers shall she betray thy words.

Psalms 103:6-14
6. The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment, for all them that suffer wrong.
7. He shewed his ways unto Moses, and his works unto the children of Israel.
8. The LORD is full of compassion and mercy, longsuffering, and of great goodness.
9. He will not alway be chiding, neither will he keep his anger forever.
10. He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us according to our wickedness.
11. For look how high(hye) the heaven is in comparison of the earth, so great is his mercy also toward them that fear him.
12. Look how wide the east is from the west, so far hath he set our sins from us.
13. Yea like as a father pitieth his own children, even so is the LORD merciful unto them that fear him.
14. For he knoweth whereof we be made, he remembereth that we are but dust.

Proverbs 24:10-12
10. If thou be oversene and negligent in time of need, then is thy strength but small.
11. Deliver them that go unto death, and are led away to be slain, and be not negligent therein.
12. If thou wilt say: I knew not of it; Thinkest thou that he which made the hearts, doth not consider it? And that he which regardeth thy soul, seeth it not? Shall not he recompense every man according to his works?

1 Corinthians 10:19-33
19. What say I then? that the image(Idoll) is anything? or that it which is offered to images(the Idoll) is anything?
20. Nay, but I say, that those(these) things which the gentiles(Heathen) offer, they offer to devils, and not to God. And I would not that ye should have fellowship with the devils.
21. Ye cannot drink of the cup of the Lord, and of the cup of the devils. Ye can not be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
22. Other(Either) shall we provoke the Lord? other(Or) are we stronger than he?
23. All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient.(I may do all things, but all things are not profitable) All things are lawful, (to me) but all things edify not.
24. Let no man seek his own profit: but let every man seek his neighbors(seek another's) wealth.
25. Whatsoever is sold in the market, that eat, and ask no questions for conscience sake.
26. For the earth is the Lord's,(lordis) and all that therein is.
27. If any of them which believe not bid you to a feast, and if ye be disposed to go, whatsoever is set before you eat, asking no question for conscience sake;
28. but and if any man say unto you: this is dedicated(offered) unto idols, eat not of it for his sake that shewed it, and for hurting of conscience: the earth is the Lord's and all that therein is.
29. Conscience I say, not thine: but the conscience of that other. (For) Why should my liberty be judged of another man's conscience?
30. For if I take my part with thanks:(thanksgiving) why am I evil spoken of for that thing wherefore I give thanks?
31. Whether therefore ye eat or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the praise of God.
32. See that ye give none occasion of evil,(falling) neither to the jews, nor yet to the gentiles, neither to the congregation of God:
33. even as I please all men in all things not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they might be saved.
