Ecclesiastes 5:7-9 The Voice (VOICE)

Daydreaming and excessive talking are pointless and fleeting things to do, like trying to catch hold of a breath. What good comes from them? It is better to quietly reverence God.

If you see the poor oppressed, justice denied, and righteousness rejected in a particular place, then do not be surprised at this; for those in power are watched over by those higher up, and they in turn by some even higher. Still, it is better for the land in every way to have a king who cultivates the fields.[a]
