  1. Now, I have carefully thought about all this, and I explain it in this way: Righteous people and wise people, along with their accomplishments, are in God’s hands. No one knows whether there will be love or hatred.
    Ecclesiastes 9:1 GW

  2. But all who are among the living have hope, because a living dog is better than a dead lion.
    Ecclesiastes 9:4 GW

  3. Go, enjoy eating your food, and drink your wine cheerfully, because God has already accepted what you’ve done. Always wear clean clothes, and never go without lotion on your head. Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, during all your brief, pointless life. God has given you your pointless life under the sun. This is your lot ⌞in life⌟ and what you get for the hard work that you do under the sun.
    Ecclesiastes 9:7‭-‬9 GW

  4. Whatever presents itself for you to do, do it with ⌞all⌟ your might, because there is no work, planning, knowledge, or skill in the grave where you’re going.
    Ecclesiastes 9:10 GW

  5. I saw something else under the sun. The race isn’t ⌞won⌟ by fast runners, or the battle by heroes. Wise people don’t necessarily have food. Intelligent people don’t necessarily have riches, and skilled people don’t necessarily receive special treatment. But time and unpredictable events overtake all of them.
    Ecclesiastes 9:11 GW

  6. A poor, wise person was found in that town. He saved the town using his wisdom. But no one remembered that poor person.
    Ecclesiastes 9:15 GW

  7. Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner can destroy much that is good.
    Ecclesiastes 9:18 GW

  8. Dead flies will make a bottle of perfume stink, and then it is spoiled. A little foolishness outweighs wisdom ⌞and⌟ honor.
    Ecclesiastes 10:1 GW

  9. If a ruler becomes angry with you, don’t resign your position. If you remain calm, you can make up for serious offenses.
    Ecclesiastes 10:4 GW

  10. If an ax is blunt and the edge isn’t sharpened, then one has to use more strength. But wisdom prepares the way for success.
    Ecclesiastes 10:10 GW

  11. A country is blessed when the king is from a noble family and when the high officials eat at the right time in order to get strength and not to get drunk.
    Ecclesiastes 10:17 GW

  12. A meal is made for laughter, and wine makes life pleasant, but money is the answer for everything.
    Ecclesiastes 10:19 GW

  13. Divide what you have into seven parts, or even into eight, because you don’t know what disaster may happen on earth.
    Ecclesiastes 11:2 GW

  14. Whoever watches the wind will never plant. Whoever looks at the clouds will never harvest.
    Ecclesiastes 11:4 GW

  15. Just as you don’t know how the breath of life enters the limbs of a child within its mother’s womb, you also don’t understand how God, who made everything, works.
    Ecclesiastes 11:5 GW

  16. Plant your seed in the morning, and don’t let your hands rest until evening. You don’t know whether this field or that field will be profitable or whether both of them will ⌞turn out⌟ equally well.
    Ecclesiastes 11:6 GW

  17. You young people should enjoy yourselves while you’re young. You should let your hearts make you happy when you’re young. Follow wherever your heart leads you and whatever your eyes see. But realize that God will make you give an account for all these things when he judges everyone.
    Ecclesiastes 11:9 GW

  18. Remember your Creator when you are young, before the days of trouble come and the years catch up with you. They will make you say, “I have found no pleasure in them.”
    Ecclesiastes 12:1 GW

  19. Words from wise people are like spurs. Their collected sayings are like nails that have been driven in firmly. They come from one shepherd.
    Ecclesiastes 12:11 GW

  20. After having heard it all, this is the conclusion: Fear God, and keep his commands, because this applies to everyone. God will certainly judge everything that is done. This includes every secret thing, whether it is good or bad.
    Ecclesiastes 12:13‭-‬14 GW

  21. Arise, O Lord! Lift your hand, O God. Do not forget oppressed people!
    Psalms 10:12 GW

  22. You have heard the desire of oppressed people, O Lord. You encourage them. You pay close attention to them in order to provide justice for orphans and oppressed people so that no mere mortal will terrify them again.
    Psalms 10:17‭-‬18 GW
