Ecclesiastes 7:20-26

A (20) For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good <02896>, and sinneth not.

B (21) Also take no heed <03820> unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee:

C (22,23) For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others. All this have I proved by wisdom:

D (23) I said, I will be wise; but it was far from me.

D (24) That which is far off, and exceeding deep, who can find it out?

C1 (25) I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness:

B1 (26) And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart <03820> is snares and nets, and her hands as bands:

A1 (26) whoso pleaseth <02896> God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.
