Ecclesiastes Chapter 4   
  
   King James Version

  
     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. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   2 Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   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. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   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. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   5 The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   6 Better [is] an handful [with] quietness, than both the hands full [with] travail and vexation of spirit. [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   7 Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun. [mhcc] [jfb] [tsk]   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. [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   9 Two [are] better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   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. [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm [alone]? [jfb] [tsk]   12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   13 Better [is] a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished. [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   14 For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also [he that is] born in his kingdom becometh poor. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   15 I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   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. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]
