 <<  Ecclesiastes 10 >> 

1A few dead flies in perfume make all of it stink, and a little foolishness outweighs a lot of wisdom.

2Sensible thoughts lead you to do right; foolish thoughts lead you to do wrong.

3Fools show their stupidity by the way they live; it's easy to see they have no sense.

4Don't give up your job when your boss gets angry. If you stay calm, you'll be forgiven.

5Some things rulers do are terribly unfair:

6they honour fools, but dishonour the rich;

7they let slaves ride on horses, but force slave owners to walk.

8If you dig a pit, you might fall in; if you break down a wall, a snake might bite you.

9You could even get hurt by chiselling a stone or chopping a log.

10If you don't sharpen your axe, it will be harder to use; if you are clever, you'll know what to do.

11The power to charm a snake does you no good if it bites you anyway.

12If you talk sensibly, you will have friends; if you talk foolishly, you will destroy yourself.

13Fools begin with nonsense, and their stupid chatter ends with disaster.

14They never tire of talking, but none of us really know what the future will bring.

15Fools wear themselves out— they don't know enough to find their way home.

16A country is in for trouble when its ruler is childish, and its leaders feast all day long.

17But a nation will prosper when its ruler is mature, and its leaders don't feast too much.

18Some people are too lazy to fix a leaky roof— then the house falls in.

19Eating and drinking make you feel happy, and bribes can buy everything you need.

20Don't even think about cursing the king; don't curse the rich, not even in secret. A little bird might hear and tell everything.
