Ecclesiastes 7:24-29

From Nicholas White

A. 24 That which is far off, and exceeding deep, who can find it out ?

B. 25 I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out  wisdom,

C. and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness:

D. 26 And I find more bitter than death the woman,

E. whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands.

E’. Whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her;

D’. but the sinner shall be taken by her.

C’. 27 Behold, this have I found, saith the preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account

B’. 28 Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.

A’. 29 Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.
