On Working too Hard and on Rest.

Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit. Ecclesiastes 4:6. (KJV)

The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteouseness for his name's sake. Pslam 23: 1-3. (KJV)

For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not. But ye said: No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore ye shall flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift. Isaiah 30: 15-16.
