Ecclesiastes 7:2-6 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death1 is the destiny2 of every man; the living should take this to heart. 3 Sorrow is better than laughter,3 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.4 5 It is better to heed a wise man's rebuke5 than to listen to the song of fools. 6 Like the crackling of thorns6 under the pot, so is the laughter7 of fools. This too is meaningless.
