Ecclesiastes, ix. 7

GO 1 then and eat thy bread in gladness, and drink with joy thy wine, for thy works please God. All times be thy clothes white, and oil from thy head fail not. Parfetly use life with the wife that thou lovest, all the days of the life of thine unsteadfastness that been given to thee under sun, in all the time of thy vanity; for this is thy part in life, and in thy travail that thou travailest under sun.  1
Note 1. Ecclesiastes, ix. 7. From Wyclif’s and Purvey’s versions, combined and the spelling modified. [back]
