New International Version
2 It is better to go to a house of mourning
than to go to a house of feasting,
for death(A) is the destiny(B) of everyone;
the living should take this to heart.
3 Frustration is better than laughter,(C)
because a sad face is good for the heart.
4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning,
but the heart of fools is in the house of pleasure.(D)
5 It is better to heed the rebuke(E) of a wise person
than to listen to the song of fools.
