Ecclesiastes 5:8

“¶ 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.”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiastes 5:8

5. Better is it that thou shouldest not vowe, then that thou shouldest vowe and not pay. 6. Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sinne, neither say thou before the Angel, that it was an errour: wherefore should God be angrie at thy voyce, and destroy the worke of thine hands? 7. For in the multitude of dreames and many words, there are also diuers vanities: but feare thou God. 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?
