Ecclesiastes 9:13-16 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

Wisdom Better Than Folly

13 I also saw under the sun this example of wisdom1 that greatly impressed me: 14 There was once a small city with only a few people in it. And a powerful king came against it, surrounded it and built huge siegeworks against it. 15 Now there lived in that city a man poor but wise, and he saved the city by his wisdom. But nobody remembered that poor man.2 16 So I said, "Wisdom is better than strength." But the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are no longer heeded.3
