The King James Version Bible

Ecclesiastes 10:3-8

  1. Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool.

  2. If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding pacifieth great offences.

  3. There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler:

  4. Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place.

  5. I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.

  6. He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
