1Cast thy breadupona the waters: for thou shalt find it after manydays.2Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.3
If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the treefall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the treefalleth , there it shall be .
He that observeth the wind shall not sow ; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap .
As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
In the morningsow thy seed, and in the eveningwithhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper ,b either this or that, or whether they both shall be alikegood.
