Wisdom 15:9
Yet the potters don’t worry that they are going to come down with some terrible disease or even that they will have only a short life. Rather, they spend all their time competing with the goldsmiths and the silversmiths, imitating the bronzeworkers, and thinking it’s the greatest honor imaginable that they spend their lives making counterfeit gods.
But his care is, not that he shall labour, nor that his life is short, but he striveth with the goldsmiths and silversmiths: and he endeavoureth to do like the workers in brass, and counteth it a glory to make vain things.
His life will be short, and he will soon have to die, but he is not concerned about that. He wants to compete with those who work in gold, silver, and bronze, and make things like they do. He takes great pride in the things he makes, but they are counterfeit.
But his concern is not that he is to die nor that his span of life is brief; Rather, he vies with goldsmiths and silversmiths and emulates molders of bronze, and takes pride in fashioning counterfeits.
But the workers are not concerned that mortals are destined to die or that their life is brief, but they compete with workers in gold and silver, and imitate workers in copper; and they count it a glorious thing to mold counterfeit gods.

But he hath care, not for he shall travail, neither for his life is short, but he striveth with goldsmiths and silversmiths; but also he (pur)sueth workers of brass, and setteth before glory; for he maketh superfluous things. [But and there is care to him, not for he is to travail, nor for his life is short, but that men (dis)pute with goldsmiths and silversmiths; but and metal makers he followeth, and glory he beareth before; for things overvoid he maketh.]
