Keholet (Ecclesiastes)

 Westminster Leningrad Codex Wiki English Translation‎ / World English Bible
1זְב֣וּבֵי מָ֔וֶת יַבְאִ֥ישׁ יַבִּ֖יעַ שֶׁ֣מֶן רוֹקֵ֑חַ יָקָ֛ר מֵחָכְמָ֥ה מִכָּב֖וֹד סִכְל֥וּת מְעָֽט ׃Eccl 10:1
¶Dead flies cause the oil of the perfumer to send forth an evil odor; so does a little folly outweigh wisdom and honor.
2לֵ֤ב חָכָם֙ לִֽימִינ֔וֹ וְלֵ֥ב כְּסִ֖יל לִשְׂמֹאלֽוֹ ׃Eccl 10:2
A wise man’s heart is at his right hand, but a fool’s heart at his left.
3וְגַם ־ בַּדֶּ֛רֶךְ ‏{ כשהסכל כְּשֶׁסָּכָ֥ל }‏ הֹלֵ֖ךְ לִבּ֣וֹ חָסֵ֑ר וְאָמַ֥ר לַכֹּ֖ל סָכָ֥ל הֽוּא ׃Eccl 10:3
Yes also, when the fool walks by the way, his understanding fails him, and he says to everyone that he is a fool.
4אִם ־ ר֤וּחַ הַמּוֹשֵׁל֙ תַּעֲלֶ֣ה עָלֶ֔יךָ מְקוֹמְךָ֖ אַל ־ תַּנַּ֑ח כִּ֣י מַרְפֵּ֔א יַנִּ֖יחַ חֲטָאִ֥ים גְּדוֹלִֽים ׃Eccl 10:4
If the spirit of the ruler rises up against you, don’t leave your place; for gentleness lays great offenses to rest.
5יֵ֣שׁ רָעָ֔ה רָאִ֖יתִי תַּ֣חַת הַשָּׁ֑מֶשׁ כִּשְׁגָגָ֕ה שֶׁיֹּצָ֖א מִלִּפְנֵ֥י הַשַּׁלִּֽיט ׃Eccl 10:5
¶There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, the sort of error which proceeds from the ruler.
6נִתַּ֣ן הַסֶּ֔כֶל בַּמְּרוֹמִ֖ים רַבִּ֑ים וַעֲשִׁירִ֖ים בַּשֵּׁ֥פֶל יֵשֵֽׁבוּ ׃Eccl 10:6
Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in a low place.
7רָאִ֥יתִי עֲבָדִ֖ים עַל ־ סוּסִ֑ים וְשָׂרִ֛ים הֹלְכִ֥ים כַּעֲבָדִ֖ים עַל ־ הָאָֽרֶץ ׃Eccl 10:7
I have seen servants on horses, and princes walking like servants on the earth.
8חֹפֵ֥ר גּוּמָּ֖ץ בּ֣וֹ יִפּ֑וֹל וּפֹרֵ֥ץ גָּדֵ֖ר יִשְּׁכֶ֥נּוּ נָחָֽשׁ ׃Eccl 10:8
He who digs a pit may fall into it; and whoever breaks through a wall may be bitten by a snake.
9מַסִּ֣יעַ אֲבָנִ֔ים יֵעָצֵ֖ב בָּהֶ֑ם בּוֹקֵ֥עַ עֵצִ֖ים יִסָּ֥כֶן בָּֽם ׃Eccl 10:9
Whoever carves out stones may be injured by them. Whoever splits wood may be endangered thereby.
10אִם ־ קֵהָ֣ה הַבַּרְזֶ֗ל וְהוּא֙ לֹא ־ פָנִ֣ים קִלְקַ֔ל וַחֲיָלִ֖ים יְגַבֵּ֑ר וְיִתְר֥וֹן הַכְשֵׁ֖יר חָכְמָֽה ׃Eccl 10:10
If the axe is blunt, and one doesn’t sharpen the edge, then he must use more strength; but skill brings success.
11אִם ־ יִשֹּׁ֥ךְ הַנָּחָ֖שׁ בְּלוֹא ־ לָ֑חַשׁ וְאֵ֣ין יִתְר֔וֹן לְבַ֖עַל הַלָּשֽׁוֹן ׃Eccl 10:11
¶If the snake bites before it is charmed, then is there no profit for the charmer’s tongue.
12דִּבְרֵ֥י פִי ־ חָכָ֖ם חֵ֑ן וְשִׂפְת֥וֹת כְּסִ֖יל תְּבַלְּעֶֽנּוּ ׃Eccl 10:12
The words of a wise man’s mouth are gracious; but a fool is swallowed by his own lips.
13תְּחִלַּ֥ת דִּבְרֵי ־ פִ֖יהוּ סִכְל֑וּת וְאַחֲרִ֣ית פִּ֔יהוּ הוֹלֵל֖וּת רָעָֽה ׃Eccl 10:13
The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness; and the end of his talk is mischievous madness.
14וְהַסָּכָ֖ל יַרְבֶּ֣ה דְבָרִ֑ים לֹא ־ יֵדַ֤ע הָאָדָם֙ מַה ־ שֶׁיִּֽהְיֶ֔ה וַאֲשֶׁ֤ר יִֽהְיֶה֙ מֵֽאַחֲרָ֔יו מִ֖י יַגִּ֥יד לֽוֹ ׃Eccl 10:14
A fool also multiplies words.
¶Man doesn’t know what will be; and that which will be after him, who can tell him?
15עֲמַ֥ל הַכְּסִילִ֖ים תְּיַגְּעֶ֑נּוּ אֲשֶׁ֥ר לֹֽא ־ יָדַ֖ע לָלֶ֥כֶת אֶל ־ עִֽיר ׃Eccl 10:15
The labor of fools wearies every one of them; for he doesn’t know how to go to the city.
16אִֽי ־ לָ֣ךְ אֶ֔רֶץ שֶׁמַּלְכֵּ֖ךְ נָ֑עַר וְשָׂרַ֖יִךְ בַּבֹּ֥קֶר יֹאכֵֽלוּ ׃Eccl 10:16
Woe to you, land, when your king is a child,
and your princes eat in the morning!
17אַשְׁרֵ֣יךְ אֶ֔רֶץ שֶׁמַּלְכֵּ֖ךְ בֶּן ־ חוֹרִ֑ים וְשָׂרַ֙יִךְ֙ בָּעֵ֣ת יֹאכֵ֔לוּ בִּגְבוּרָ֖ה וְלֹ֥א בַשְּׁתִֽי ׃Eccl 10:17
Happy are you, land, when your king is the son of nobles,
and your princes eat in due season,
for strength, and not for drunkenness!
18בַּעֲצַלְתַּ֖יִם יִמַּ֣ךְ הַמְּקָרֶ֑ה וּבְשִׁפְל֥וּת יָדַ֖יִם יִדְלֹ֥ף הַבָּֽיִת ׃Eccl 10:18
By slothfulness the roof sinks in;
and through idleness of the hands the house leaks.
19לִשְׂחוֹק֙ עֹשִׂ֣ים לֶ֔חֶם וְיַ֖יִן יְשַׂמַּ֣ח חַיִּ֑ים וְהַכֶּ֖סֶף יַעֲנֶ֥ה אֶת ־ הַכֹּֽל ׃Eccl 10:19
A feast is made for laughter,
and wine makes the life glad;
and money is the answer for all things.
20גַּ֣ם בְּמַדָּֽעֲךָ֗ מֶ֚לֶךְ אַל ־ תְּקַלֵּ֔ל וּבְחַדְרֵי֙ מִשְׁכָּ֣בְךָ֔ אַל ־ תְּקַלֵּ֖ל עָשִׁ֑יר כִּ֣י ע֤וֹף הַשָּׁמַ֙יִם֙ יוֹלִ֣יךְ אֶת ־ הַקּ֔וֹל וּבַ֥עַל ‏{ הכנפים כְּנָפַ֖יִם }‏ יַגֵּ֥יד דָּבָֽר ׃Eccl 10:20
Don’t curse the king, no, not in your thoughts;
and don’t curse the rich in your bedroom:
for a bird of the sky may carry your voice,
and that which has wings may tell the matter.
« Ch 9» Ch 11
