Ecclesiastes 7:1-6 (New International Version)

Wisdom

1 A good name is better than fine perfume,1 and the day of death better than the day of birth.2 2 It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death3 is the destiny4 of every man; the living should take this to heart. 3 Sorrow is better than laughter,5 because a sad face is good for the heart. 4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of pleasure.6 5 It is better to heed a wise man's rebuke7 than to listen to the song of fools. 6 Like the crackling of thorns8 under the pot, so is the laughter9 of fools. This too is meaningless.
