Context
Wisdom is Better Than Strength

13This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great to me: 14There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it: 15Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man. 16Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard. 17The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that rules among fools. 18Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroys much good.
