Ecclesiastes 5:11

“When goods increase, they are increased that eate them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, sauing the beholding of them with their eyes?”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiastes 5:11

8. ¶ If thou seest the oppression of the poore, and violent peruerting of iudgement, and iustice in a prouince, maruell not at the matter: for he that is higher then the highest, regardeth, and there be higher then they. 9. ¶ Moreouer the profit of the earth is for all: the king himselfe is serued by the field. 10. Hee that loueth siluer shall not be satisfied with siluer; nor he that loueth abundance, with increase: this is also vanitie. 11. When goods increase, they are increased that eate them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, sauing the beholding of them with their eyes? 12. The sleepe of a labouring man is sweete, whether he eate little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleepe. 13. There is a sore euill which I haue seene vnder the Sun, namely riches kept for the owners therof to their hurt. 14. But those riches perish by euill trauell; and he begetteth a sonne, and there is nothing in his hand.
