Chapter 4 :: Ecclesiastes

Ecclesiastes 4:1  -  So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.

Ecclesiastes 4:2  -  Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.

Ecclesiastes 4:3  -  Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 4:4  -  Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.

Ecclesiastes 4:5  -  The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.

Ecclesiastes 4:6  -  Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.

Ecclesiastes 4:7  -  Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 4:8  -  There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.

Ecclesiastes 4:9  -  Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

Ecclesiastes 4:10  -  For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

Ecclesiastes 4:11  -  Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

Ecclesiastes 4:12  -  And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Ecclesiastes 4:13  -  Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.

Ecclesiastes 4:14  -  For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.

Ecclesiastes 4:15  -  I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead.

Ecclesiastes 4:16  -  There is no end of all the people, even of all that have been before them: they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and vexation of spirit.
