Ecclesiastes 5:7-9 International Standard Version (ISV)

In spite of many daydreams, pointless actions, and empty words, it is more important to fear God.

The Use and Abuse of Wealth

Don’t be surprised when you see the poor oppressed and the violent perverting both justice and verdicts[a] in a province, for one high official watches another, and there are ones higher still over them. Also, the increase of the land belongs to everyone; the king himself is served by his[b] field.
