13There is a time when in their hands there is good success. 14For they shall also pray unto the Lord, that he would prosper that, which they give for ease and remedy to prolong life. 15He that sinneth before his Maker, let him fall into the hand of the physician. 16My son, let tears fall down over the dead, and begin to lament, as if thou hadst suffered great harm thyself; and then cover his body according to the custom, and neglect not his burial.17Weep bitterly, and make great moan, and use lamentation, as he is worthy, and that a day or two, lest thou be evil spoken of: and then comfort thyself for thy heaviness. 18For of heaviness cometh death, and the heaviness of the heart breaketh strength. 19In affliction also sorrow remaineth: and the life of the poor is the curse of the heart.
My sonne, let teares fall downe ouer the dead, and begin to lament, as if thou hadst suffered great harme thy selfe: and then couer his body according to the custome, & neglect not his buriall. - King James Version (1611) - View 1611 Bible Scan
