Ecclesiastes 5:7-9 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

For with many dreams come vanities and numerous words.
    Therefore, fear God!

Powerful Bureaucrats Exploit the Helpless Poor

Do not be surprised if you see the poor being oppressed with violence
    or do not see justice and righteousness in the province.
For one official is watched by a higher official,
    and there are even higher officials over them!
The produce of the land is exploited by everyone;
    even the king profits from the field of the poor![a]
