“Folly is set in great dignitie; and the rich sit in lowe place.”
King James Version (KJV)
3. Yea also when hee that is a foole walketh by the way, his wisedome faileth him, and hee saith to euery one that he is a foole. 4. If the spirit of the ruler rise vp against thee, leaue not thy place; for yeelding pacifieth great offences. 5. There is an euill which I haue seene vnder the Sunne, as an errour, which proceedeth from the ruler. 6. Folly is set in great dignitie; and the rich sit in lowe place. 7. I haue seene seruants vpon horses, and princes walking as seruants vpon the earth. 8. He that diggeth a pit, shall fall into it; and who so breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him. 9. Who so remoueth stones, shall be hurt therewith: and hee that cleaueth wood, shalbe endangered thereby.
