[5-31-09 Ecclesiastes7:1-4]

(1) A good name is better than precious ointment,
And the day of death than the day of one’s birth;
(2) Better to go to the house of mourning
Than to go to the house of feasting,
For that is the end of all men;
And the living will take it to heart.
(3) Sorrow is better than laughter,
For by a sad countenance the heart is made better.
(4) The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning,
But the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.
