Ecclesiastes 4

1  So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.

2  Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.

3  Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.

4  Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.

5  The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.

6  Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.

7  Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun.

8  There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.

9  Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

10  For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
