And who can trace outf His mighty deeds?
Nor can any one trace out the marvellous acts of the Lordg.
And when he ceaseth, he is in perplexity.
What is the good of him, and what is the evil?
And poureth out His mercy upon them.
Therefore doth He multiply His forgivenessw.
Reproving, and chastening, and teachinga,
And bringing them back as a shepherd his flock.
(f) 18:15–18. The right spirit in giving
(= 2 + 2 distichs).
And both belong to a saintlyn man.
18 A fool upbraideth ungraciouslyo,
(g) 18:19–29. The need of foresight and preparation in view of many things which happen to men; this is true Wisdom
And poverty and want in the days of wealth.
(a) 18:30–19:3. An Exhortation to Self-control in all things
Thou wilt be like him that fulfilleth his enemy’s wisha.
Else there will be nothing in thy pursed.
