Ecclesiastes 5:7
Context
Approaching God with Awe

1Keep your foot when you go to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil. 2Be not rash with your mouth, and let not your heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and you on earth: therefore let your words be few. 3For a dream comes through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words. 4When you vow a vow to God, defer not to pay it; for he has no pleasure in fools: pay that which you have vowed. 5Better is it that you should not vow, than that you should vow and not pay. 6Suffer not your mouth to cause your flesh to sin; neither say you before the angel, that it was an error: why should God be angry at your voice, and destroy the work of your hands? 7For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear you God.
