Ecclesiasticus 16:3

“Trust not thou in their life, neither respect their multitude: for one that is iust, is better then a thousand, and better it is to die without children, then to haue them that are vngodly.”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiasticus 16:3

1. Desire not a multitude of vnprofitable children, neither delight in vngodly sonnes. 2. Though they multiply, reioyce not in them, except the feare of the Lord be with them. 3. Trust not thou in their life, neither respect their multitude: for one that is iust, is better then a thousand, and better it is to die without children, then to haue them that are vngodly. 4. For by one that hath vnderstanding, shall the city be replenished, but the kindred of the wicked, shall speedily become desolate. 5. Many such things haue I seene with mine eyes, and mine eare hath heard greater things then these. 6. In the congregation of the vngodly, shall a fire be kindled, and in a rebellious nation, wrath is set on fire.
