Ecclesiastes 7:28 (King James Version)
Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.
- Ecclesiastes 7:23 Ecclesiastes 7:24 ; Isaiah 26:9
- Job 33:23 ; Psalms 12:1
- Solomon, instead of seeking one rational, virtuous woman, had collected an immense multitude, of various countries and religions, for magnificence and indulgence; among whom, as might have been expected, he had not found one who was thoroughly faithful, upright, and pious. He here uses the language of a penitent, warning others of the errors into which he had been led; and not that of a wasphish satirist, lashing indiscriminately one half of the human species.
- 1 Kings 11:1-3
