Ecclesiastes Chapter 8   
  
   King James Version

  
     1 Who [is] as the wise [man]? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man's wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   2 I [counsel thee] to keep the king's commandment, and [that] in regard of the oath of God. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   3 Be not hasty to go out of his sight: stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   4 Where the word of a king [is, there is] power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou? [jfb] [tsk]   5 Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   6 Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man [is] great upon him. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   7 For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be? [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   8 [There is] no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither [hath he] power in the day of death: and [there is] no discharge in [that] war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   9 All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: [there is] a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   10 And so I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of the holy, and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done: this [is] also vanity. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   12 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his [days] be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: [jfb] [tsk]   13 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong [his] days, [which are] as a shadow; because he feareth not before God. [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   14 There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just [men], unto whom it happeneth according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked [men], to whom it happeneth according to the work of the righteous: I said that this also [is] vanity. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   15 Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   16 When I applied mine heart to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done upon the earth: (for also [there is that] neither day nor night seeth sleep with his eyes:) [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   17 Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labour to seek [it] out, yet he shall not find [it]; yea further; though a wise [man] think to know [it], yet shall he not be able to find [it]. [jwc] [tsk]
