Ecclesiastes 4:9-13

View Full Chapter

9Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor:

10If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.

11Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?

12Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Advancement Is Meaningless 13Better a poor but wise youth than an old but foolish king who no longer knows how to heed a warning.
