Ecclesiastes 10:12-19

12Words spoken by the wise bring them favor, but the lips of fools consume them. 13The words of their mouths begin in foolishness, and their talk ends in wicked madness; 14yet fools talk on and on. No one knows what is to happen, and who can tell anyone what the future holds? 15The toil of fools wears them out, for they do not even know the way to town.

16Alas for you, O land, when your king is a servant, and your princes feast in the morning! 17Happy are you, O land, when your king is a nobleman, and your princes feast at the proper time— for strength, and not for drunkenness! 18Through sloth the roof sinks in, and through indolence the house leaks. 19Feasts are made for laughter; wine gladdens life, and money meets every need.
