“For wisedome is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellencie of knowledge is, that wisedome giueth life to them that haue it.”
King James Version (KJV)
9. Be not hastie in thy spirit to bee angry: for anger resteth in the bosome of fooles. 10. Say not thou, What is the cause that the former dayes were better then these? For thou doest not enquire wisely concerning this. 11. ¶ Wisedome is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profite to them that see the sunne. 12. For wisedome is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellencie of knowledge is, that wisedome giueth life to them that haue it. 13. Consider the worke of God: for who can make that straight, which hee hath made crooked? 14. In the day of prosperitie be ioyfull, but in the day of aduersitie consider: God also hath set the one ouer against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him. 15. All things haue I seene in the dayes of my vanitie: there is a iust man that perisheth in his righteousnes, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickednes.
