Proverbs 23:3-5 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

Do not desire the ruler’s[a] delicacies,
    for they are deceptive food.
Do not wear yourself out to get rich;
    be wise enough to desist.
When your eyes light upon it, it is gone;
    for suddenly it takes wings to itself,
    flying like an eagle towards heaven.
