Song of Songs 1–3 1 The Song of Songs, which is Solomon’s. 2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! For your love is better than wine. 3 Your anointing oils are fragrant, your name is oil poured out; therefore the virgins love you. 4 Draw me after you, let us run. The king has brought me into his chambers. We will exult and rejoice in you; we will remember your love

Ecclesiastes 10–12 1 A dead fly causes a stench in mixed anointing oil, so a little folly is more weighty than wisdom and honor. 2 The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of a fool to the left. 3 Even when a fool walks on the road, he lacks sense, and he shows everyone that he is a fool. 4 If the anger of a ruler rises against you, do

Ecclesiastes 7–9 1 A good name is better than precious ointment, and the day of death than the day of birth. 2 It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for this is the end of all mankind; and the living will lay it to heart. 3 Grief is better than laughter, for with a downcast face the heart considers the good. 4 The heart

Ecclesiastes 1–3 1 These are the words of the Preacher, the son of David and king in Jerusalem. 2 “Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher; “vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” 3 What benefit is there to a man in all his labors that he toils under the sun? 4 A generation comes, and a generation goes, but the earth continually remains. 5 The sun comes up, and the sun goes down, and hurries to

Proverbs 30–31 1 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, the oracle. The man declares to Ithiel, to Ithiel and Ukal: 2 Surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not the understanding of a man. 3 I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the holy. 4 Who has ascended up into heaven, or descended?

Proverbs 27–29 1 Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. 2 Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips. 3 A stone is heavy and the sand weighty, but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both. 4 Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous, but who is able to stand before envy? 5 Open rebuke is
