The Bible in Its Traditions

Ecclesiastes 6:8


For what advantage hath the wise more than the fool? or the poor man that hath understanding, in walking before the living?

What do the wise have which is more than the foolish? And what does the pauper have, except to continue on to that place, where there is life?

The wise man has an advantage over the fool. What! Does the poor man know how to go through life?
