7 I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.
8 He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoever breaketh a hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
9 Whoever removeth stones shall be hurt by them; [and] he that cleaveth wood shall be endangered by it.
10 If the iron is blunt, and he doth not whet the edge, then must he use more strength: but wisdom [is] profitable to direct.
11 Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment; and a babbler is no better.
