“Better is little with the feare of the Lord, then great treasure, and trouble therewith.”
King James Version (KJV)
13. A merry heart maketh a cheerefull countenance: but by sorrow of the heart, the spirit is broken. 14. The heart of him that hath vnderstanding, seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fooles feedeth on foolishnesse. 15. All the dayes of the afflicted are euill: but he that is of a merry heart, hath a continuall feast. 16. Better is little with the feare of the Lord, then great treasure, and trouble therewith. 17. Better is a dinner of herbes where loue is, then a stalled oxe, and hatred therewith. 18. A wrathfull man stirreth vp strife: but he that is slow to anger, appeaseth strife. 19. The way of the slouthfull man is as an hedge of thornes: but the way of the righteous is made plaine.
