1 Cast thy abread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.
2 Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou aknowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.
3 If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.
4 He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not areap.
6 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.
7 ¶ Truly the alight is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun:
9 ¶ Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart acheer thee in the days of thy youth, and bwalk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into cjudgment.
