Ecclesiastes 5:7-9 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
7 With many dreams come vanities and a multitude of words;[a] but fear God.
8 If you see in a province the oppression of the poor and the violation of justice and right, do not be amazed at the matter; for the high official is watched by a higher, and there are yet higher ones over them. 9 But all things considered, this is an advantage for a land: a king for a plowed field.[b]
