14For the thoughts of mortall men are miserable, and our deuices are but vncertaine. 15For the corruptible body presseth downe the soule, and the earthy tabernacle weigheth downe the minde that museth vpon many things. 16And hardly doe we gesse aright at things that are vpon earth, and with labour doe wee find the things that are before vs: but the things that are in heauen, who hath searched out?17And thy counsell who hath knowen, except thou giue wisedome, and send thy holy spirit from aboue? 18For so the wayes of them which liued on the earth were reformed, and men were taught the things that are pleasing vnto thee, and were saued through wisedome.
And hardly do we guess aright at things that are upon earth, and with labour do we find the things that are before us: but the things that are in heaven who hath searched out?
