Ecclesiastes 7:24-29 (The Message)

View In My Bible
24 far beyond me, and deep - oh so deep! Does anyone ever find it? 25 I concentrated with all my might, studying and exploring and seeking wisdom - the meaning of life. I also wanted to identify evil and stupidity, foolishness and craziness. 26 One discovery: A woman can be a bitter pill to swallow, full of seductive scheming and grasping. The lucky escape her; the undiscerning get caught. 27 At least this is my experience - what I, the Quester, have pieced together as I've tried to make sense of life. 28 But the wisdom I've looked for I haven't found. I didn't find one man or woman in a thousand worth my while. 29 Yet I did spot one ray of light in this murk: God made men and women true and upright; we're the ones who've made a mess of things.
