Ecclesiastes 5:7-9 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Just as there is futility in many dreams,
so also in many words.
Therefore, fear God!

Government Corruption

If you see the extortion of the poor,
or the perversion of justice and fairness in the government,
do not be astonished by the matter.
For the high official is watched by a higher official,
and there are higher ones over them!
The produce of the land is seized by all of them,
even the king is served by the fields.
