Yes, I know. Ecclesiastes is getting boring and repetitive, but it’s almost over. Three more chapters to go and we move on to a different chapter.
“As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.” – Ecclesiastes 10:1
Um…yeah…that’s not what makes perfume smell bad.
“…whoever breaks through a wall may be bitten by a snake.” – Ecclesiastes 10:8
Um…what? Okay, I guess I’ll be careful of snakes when I go breaking walls?
“Do not revile the king even in your thoughts, or curse the rich in your bedroom, because a bird in the sky may carry your words, and a bird on the wing may report what you say.” – Ecclesiastes 10:20
This is the biblical way of saying ‘snitches get stitches’.
Not much else to report from this chapter. Life is still meaningless according to the Bible.
