4 I enlarged my works: I built houses for myself, I planted vineyards for myself; 7 I bought male and female slaves and I had homeborn slaves. Also I possessed flocks and herds larger than all who preceded me in Jerusalem. 14 For he has come out of prison to become king, even though he was born poor in his kingdom.

Your Attitude Toward God

1 Guard your steps as you go to the house of God and draw near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know they are doing evil. 2 It is better to go to a house of mourning Than to go to a house of feasting, Because that is the end of every man, And the living takes it to heart. 4 The mind of the wise is in the house of mourning, While the mind of fools is in the house of pleasure. 18 Through indolence the rafters sag, and through slackness the house leaks. 3 in the day that the watchmen of the house tremble, and mighty men stoop, the grinding ones stand idle because they are few, and those who look through windows grow dim; 5 Furthermore, men are afraid of a high place and of terrors on the road; the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper drags himself along, and the caperberry is ineffective. For man goes to his eternal home while mourners go about in the street.
