Ecclesiastes 7:29
Context
Limits of Human Wisdom

15All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perishes in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongs his life in his wickedness. 16Be not righteous over much; neither make yourself over wise: why should you destroy yourself ? 17Be not over much wicked, neither be you foolish: why should you die before your time? 18It is good that you should take hold of this; yes, also from this withdraw not your hand: for he that fears God shall come forth of them all. 19Wisdom strengthens the wise more than ten mighty men which are in the city. 20For there is not a just man on earth, that does good, and sins not. 21Also take no heed to all words that are spoken; lest you hear your servant curse you: 22For oftentimes also your own heart knows that you yourself likewise have cursed others. 23All this have I proved by wisdom: I said, I will be wise; but it was far from me. 24That which is far off, and exceeding deep, who can find it out? 25I applied my heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness: 26And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoever pleases God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her. 27Behold, this have I found, said the preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account: 28Which yet my soul seeks, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found. 29See, this only have I found, that God has made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.
