   1: Words of a Gatherer, son of an obedient one, the declaration, an affirmation of the man: -- I have wearied myself [for] God, I have wearied myself [for] God, and am consumed.
   2: For I am more brutish than any one, And have not the understanding of a man.
   3: Nor have I learned wisdom, Yet the knowledge of Holy Ones I know.
   4: Who went up to heaven, and cometh down? Who hath gathered the wind in his fists? Who hath bound waters in a garment? Who established all ends of the earth? What [is] His name? and what His son's name? Surely thou knowest!
   5: Every saying of God [is] tried, A shield He [is] to those trusting in Him.
   6: Add not to His words, lest He reason with thee, And thou hast been found false.
   7: Two things I have asked from Thee, Withhold not from me before I die.
   8: Vanity and a lying word put far from me, Poverty or wealth give not to me, Cause me to eat the bread of my portion,
   9: Lest I become satiated, and have denied, And have said, 'Who [is] Jehovah?' And lest I be poor, and have stolen, And have laid hold of the name of my God.
   10: Accuse not a servant unto his lord, Lest he disesteem thee, and thou be found guilty.
   11: A generation [is], that lightly esteemeth their father, And their mother doth not bless.
   12: A generation -- pure in their own eyes, But from their own filth not washed.
   13: A generation -- how high are their eyes, Yea, their eyelids are lifted up.
   14: A generation -- swords [are] their teeth, And knives -- their jaw-teeth, To consume the poor from earth, And the needy from [among] men.
   15: To the leech [are] two daughters, 'Give, give, Lo, three things are not satisfied, Four have not said 'Sufficiency;'
   16: Sheol, and a restrained womb, Earth -- it [is] not satisfied [with] water, And fire -- it hath not said, 'Sufficiency,'
   17: An eye that mocketh at a father, And despiseth to obey a mother, Dig it out do ravens of the valley, And eat it do young eagles.
   18: Three things have been too wonderful for me, Yea, four that I have not known:
   19: The way of the eagle in the heavens, The way of a serpent on a rock, The way of a ship in the heart of the sea, And the way of a man in youth.
   20: So -- the way of an adulterous woman, She hath eaten and hath wiped her mouth, And hath said, 'I have not done iniquity.'
   21: For three things hath earth been troubled, And for four -- it is not able to bear:
   22: For a servant when he reigneth, And a fool when he is satisfied with bread,
   23: For a hated one when she ruleth, And a maid-servant when she succeedeth her mistress.
   24: Four [are] little ones of earth, And they are made wiser than the wise:
   25: The ants [are] a people not strong, And they prepare in summer their food,
   26: Conies [are] a people not strong, And they place in a rock their house,
   27: A king there is not to the locust, And it goeth out -- each one shouting,
   28: A spider with two hands taketh hold, And is in the palaces of a king.
   29: Three there are going well, Yea, four are good in going:
   30: An old lion -- mighty among beasts, That turneth not back from the face of any,
   31: A girt one of the loins, or a he-goat, And a king -- no rising up with him.
   32: If thou hast been foolish in lifting up thyself, And if thou hast devised evil -- hand to mouth!
   33: For the churning of milk bringeth out butter, And the wringing of the nose bringeth out blood, And the forcing of anger bringeth out strife!
