Ecclesiastes 5:7-9 Common English Bible (CEB)

Remember:
    When dreams multiply,
        so do pointless thoughts and excessive speech.
        Therefore, fear God.

Hoarding wealth

If you witness the poor being oppressed or the violation of what is just and right in some territory, don’t be surprised because a high official watches over another, and yet others stand over them. But the land’s yield should be for everyone if the field is cultivated.[a]
