As dead flies give perfume a bad smell,
so a little folly(A) outweighs wisdom and honor.
14 No one knows what is coming—
who can tell someone else what will happen after them?(
19 A feast is made for laughter,
wine(R) makes life merry,
and money is the answer for everything.
20 Do not revile the king(S) 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.
