Ecclesiastes 10:7-17 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
7 I have seen servants upon horses: and princes walking on the ground as servants. 8 He that diggeth a pit, shall fall into it: and he that breaketh a hedge, a serpent shall bite him. 9 He that removeth stones, shall be hurt by them: and he that cutteth trees, shall be wounded by them. 10 If the iron be blunt, and be not as before, but be made blunt, with much labour it shall be sharpened: and after industry shall follow wisdom. 11 If a serpent bite in silence, he is nothing better that backbiteth secretly. 12 The words of the mouth of a wise man are grace: but the lips of a fool shall throw him down headlong. 13 The beginning of his words is folly, and the end of his talk is a mischievous error. 14 A fool multiplieth words. A man cannot tell what hath been before him: and what shall be after him, who can tell him? 15 The labour of fools shall afflict them that know not how to go to the city. 16 Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and when the princes eat in the morning. 17 Blessed is the land, whose king is noble, and whose princes eat in due season for refreshment, and not for riotousness.
