The King James Version Bible

Ecclesiastes 8:2-5

  1. I counsel thee to keep the king's commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God.

  2. Be not hasty to go out of his sight: stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him.

  3. Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?

  4. Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment.
