God? canst thou find out the
Almighty unto perfection? It is as
high as heaven; what canst thou
do? deeper than hell; what canst
But where shall wisdom be found?
and where is the place of
understanding? Man knoweth not the
price thereof; neither is it found
in the land of the living. Whence
then cometh wisdom? and where is
the place of understanding? Seeing
it is hid from the eyes of all
living, and kept close from the
fowls of the air.
Behold, God is great, and we know
him not, neither can the number of
his years be searched out.
A prudent man foreseeth the evil,

Who hath ascended up
into heaven, or descended? who
hath gathered the wind in his
fists? who hath bound the waters
in a garment? who hath established
all the ends of the earth? what is

spendeth as a shadow? for who can
tell a man what shall be after him
under the sun?
All this have I proved
by wisdom: I said, I will be wise;
but it was far from me. That which is far off,
and exceeding deep, who can find
Because to every purpose
there is time and judgment,
therefore the misery of man is
great upon him. For he knoweth not that
which shall be: for who can tell
him when it shall be? Then I beheld all the
work of God, that a man cannot
find out the work that is done
under the sun: because though a
man labour to seek it out, yet he
shall not find it; yea further;
though a wise man think to know
it, yet shall he not be able to
For man also knoweth
not his time: as the fishes that
are taken in an evil net, and as

is the way of the spirit, nor how
the bones do grow in the womb of
her that is with child: even so
thou knowest not the works of God
who maketh all.

for you to know the times or the
seasons, which the Father hath put
in his own power.
For as I passed by, and beheld
your devotions, I found an altar
with this inscription, TO THE
UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye
ignorantly worship, him declare I
unto you. And the times of this
ignorance God winked at; but now
commandeth all men every where to
For the wisdom of
this world is foolishness with
God. For it is written, He taketh
the wise in their own craftiness.

If any of you lack wisdom, let him
ask of God, that giveth to all men

For he that wavereth is like a
wave of the sea driven with the
wind and tossed.
