1 Be in no hurry to speak; do not hastily declare yourself before God; for God is in heaven, you on earth. Be sparing, then, of speech:
Prov 15:8  Jas 1:19  Heb 12:28-29  1Pet 2:1-2  Exod 3:5  Heb 10:26  Isa 1:12-20 

2 From too much worrying comes illusion, from too much talking, the accents of folly.
Matt 6:7  Prov 10:19  Isa 55:9  Eccl 5:7  Gen 18:27  Gen 18:32  Jas 3:2 

3 If you make a vow to God, discharge it without delay, for God has no love for fools. Discharge your vow.
Prov 15:2  Prov 10:19  Eccl 10:12-14  Job 11:2 

4 Better a vow unmade than made and not discharged.
Num 30:2  Ps 66:13-14  Ps 76:11  Matt 5:33  Ps 50:14  Ps 147:10-11  Deut 23:21-23 

5 Do not allow your mouth to make a sinner of you, and do not say to the messenger that it was a mistake. Why give God occasion to be angry with you and ruin all the work that you have done?
Acts 5:4  Prov 20:25  Deut 23:22 

6 From too many illusions come futility and too much talk. Therefore, fear God.
Mal 2:7  Jas 1:26  2John 1:8  Eccl 5:1-2  Gen 48:16  Jas 3:2  Lev 5:4-6 

7 If in a province you see the poor oppressed, fair judgement and justice violated, do not be surprised, for over every official there watches a higher official, and over these, higher officials still.
Eccl 12:13  Eccl 7:18  Eccl 8:12  Eccl 3:14  Eccl 5:3  Isa 50:10-11  Matt 12:36 

8 But what the land yields is for the benefit of all, a king is served by the fields.
Ps 12:5  Eccl 4:1  Eccl 3:16  Ps 82:1  1Pet 4:12  Acts 4:27-28  Acts 12:7-10 

9 No one who loves money ever has enough, no one who loves luxury has any income; this, too, is futile.
Prov 28:19  1Chr 27:26-31  1Kgs 4:7-23  1Sam 8:12-17  Gen 1:29-30  Gen 3:17-19  Ps 104:14-15 

10 Where goods abound, parasites abound: where is the owner's profit, apart from feasting his eyes?
1Tim 6:10  Matt 6:24  Eccl 4:8  Luke 12:15  Matt 6:19  Eccl 2:11  Eccl 4:4 

11 The labourer's sleep is sweet, whether he has eaten little or much, but the surfeit of the rich will not let him sleep at all.
1John 2:16  1Kgs 4:22-23  1Kgs 5:13-16  Eccl 6:9  Eccl 11:9  Gen 12:16  Gen 13:2 

12 Something grossly unjust I observe under the sun: riches stored and turning to loss for their owner.
Prov 3:24  Jer 31:26  Ps 4:8  Ps 127:2 

13 An unlucky venture, and those riches are lost; a son is born to him, and he has nothing to leave him.
Eccl 6:1-2  Gen 19:14  Luke 18:22-23  Luke 16:22-23  Eccl 4:8  Eccl 8:9  Gen 13:5-11 

14 Naked from his mother's womb he came; as naked as he came will he depart; not one of his achievements can he take with him.
Eccl 2:26  Hag 1:9  Hag 2:16-17  Matt 6:19-20  Prov 23:5  1Kgs 14:26  1Sam 2:6-8 

15 And something else grossly unjust: that as he came, so must he go; what profit can he show after toiling to earn the wind,
Job 1:21  1Tim 6:7  Ps 49:17  Luke 12:20 

16 as he spends the rest of his days in darkness, mourning, many sorrows, sickness and exasperation.
Eccl 1:3  Prov 11:29  1Sam 12:21  Eccl 2:22-23  Eccl 5:13  Hos 8:7  Isa 26:18 

17 So my conclusion is this: true happiness lies in eating and drinking and enjoying whatever has been achieved under the sun, throughout the life given by God: for this is the lot of humanity.
Ps 127:2  1Cor 11:30-32  1Kgs 17:12  2Chr 16:10-12  2Chr 24:24-25  2Kgs 1:2  2Kgs 1:6 

18 And whenever God gives someone riches and property, with the ability to enjoy them and to find contentment in work, this is a gift from God.
Eccl 2:10  Eccl 2:24  Eccl 3:22  Eccl 3:12-13  Eccl 8:15  1Tim 6:17  Eccl 9:7 

19 For such a person will hardly notice the passing of time, so long as God keeps his heart occupied with joy.
Eccl 6:2  Eccl 3:13  Deut 8:18  1Kgs 3:13  2Chr 1:12  Eccl 2:24-26
