Ecclesiastes 7:15 - 7:18

15 I have seen everything during my days of vanity; there is a righteous man who perishes in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man who prolongs his life in his evildoing. 16 Do not be excessively righteous, and do not be overly wise. Why should you make yourself desolate? 17 Do not be excessively wicked, and do not be a simpleminded fool. Why should you die before your time? 18 It is good that you seize one thing and also not let go of the other; for the one who fears God comes forth with both of them.
