Now viewing scripture range from the book of Ecclesiastes chapter 9:16
through chapter 9:18...
16 Then said I, Wisdom [is] better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom [is] despised, and his words are not heard.
17 The words of wise [men are] heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.
18 Wisdom [is] better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.
