Ecclesiastes 4:7-11 (KJV)


7Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun.


8There is one alone, and there is not a second;

yea, he hath neither child nor brother:

yet is there no end of all his labour;

neither is his eye satisfied with riches;

neither saith he,

For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good?

This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.


9Two are better than one;

because they have a good reward for their labour.


10For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow:

but woe to him that is alone when he falleth;

for he hath not another to help him up.


11Again, if two lie together, then they have heat:

but how can one be warm alone?
