Ecclesiastes 5:7-9 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

For when dreams increase and words grow many, there is vanity;[a] but God is the one you must fear.

The Vanity of Wealth and Honour

If you see in a province the oppression of the poor and the violation of justice and righteousness, do not be amazed at the matter, for the high official is watched by a higher, and there are yet higher ones over them. But this is gain for a land in every way: a king committed to cultivated fields.[b]
