Ecclesiastes 10:1-9

ASV 1 Dead flies cause the oil of the perfumer to send forth an evil odor; [so] doth a little folly outweigh wisdom and honor. NIV 1 As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor. ASV 2 A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left. NIV 2 The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left. ASV 3 Yea also, when the fool walketh by the way, his understanding faileth him, and he saith to every one [that] he is a fool. NIV 3 Even as fools walk along the road, they lack sense and show everyone how stupid they are. ASV 4 If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for gentleness allayeth great offences. NIV 4 If a ruler’s anger rises against you, do not leave your post; calmness can lay great offenses to rest. ASV 5 There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as it were an error which proceedeth from the ruler: NIV 5 There is an evil I have seen under the sun, the sort of error that arises from a ruler: ASV 6 folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in a low place. NIV 6 Fools are put in many high positions, while the rich occupy the low ones. ASV 7 I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking like servants upon the earth. NIV 7 I have seen slaves on horseback, while princes go on foot like slaves. ASV 8 He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh through a wall, a serpent shall bite him. NIV 8 Whoever digs a pit may fall into it; whoever breaks through a wall may be bitten by a snake. ASV 9 Whoso heweth out stones shall be hurt therewith; [and] he that cleaveth wood is endangered thereby. NIV 9 Whoever quarries stones may be injured by them; whoever splits logs may be endangered by them.
