Ecclesiastes 7:1-6 (Complete Jewish Bible)

View In My Bible
1 A good name is better than perfumed oil, and the day of death better than the day of birth. 2 Better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for all are destined to be mourned; the living should lay this to heart. 3 Grief is better than laughter, for sadness can improve a person. 4 The thoughts of the wise are in the house of mourning, but the thoughts of fools are in the house of pleasure. 5 It is better to hear the rebukes of the wise than to listen to the songs of fools. 6 For the laughter of fools is like the crackling of thorns burning under a pot; this too is pointless.
