Chapter 11

1


 

  Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.  

 

 


2


 

  Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.  

 

 


3


 

  If the clouds are full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree falleth towards the south, or towards the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.  

 

 


4


 

  He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.  

 

 


5


 

  As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor the structure of the parts of conception in her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.  

 

 


6


 

  In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thy hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.  

 

 


7


 

  Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun:  

 

 


8


 

  But if a man shall live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.  

 

 


9


 

  Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thy heart, and in the sight of thy eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.  

 

 


10


 

  Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.
