Ecclesiastes 5:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.

Ecclesiastes 5:8 The Voice (VOICE)

8 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.

These are my thoughts.
We always have to answer to someone for our actions.

PostSubject: Ecc 5:9   Sun Feb 01, 2015 3:32 am

Ecclesiastes 5:9 King James Version (KJV)
9 Moreover the profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field.

Ecclesiastes 5:9 The Voice (VOICE)

9 Still, it is better for the land in every way to have a king who cultivates the fields.

These are my thoughts.
The earth is made for us by the grace of our King we have something greater to look forward to His Kingdom.

Ecclesiastes 5:10 King James Version (KJV)
10 He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.

Ecclesiastes 5:10 The Voice (VOICE)
Corruption often starts at the top and works its way down.

10 As the saying goes:
Those who love money will never be satisfied with money,
and those who love riches will never be happy with what they have.
This, too, is fleeting.

These are my thoughts.
Happiness found in money runs out and is worthless, true happiness only comes from a walk with the Lord.

PostSubject: Ecc 5:11   Wed Feb 11, 2015 1:27 pm

Ecclesiastes 5:12 King James Version (KJV)
12 The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.

Ecclesiastes 5:12 The Voice (VOICE)

12 Sweet sleep comes to those who work hard, regardless of how much or how little they’ve eaten. But the abundance of the rich keeps them awake at night.

These are my thoughts.
A hard days work helps with sleep but being focused on what you own causes a stress that keeps you up.

Ecclesiastes 5:11 King James Version (KJV)
11 When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes?

Ecclesiastes 5:11 The Voice (VOICE)

11 The more goods there are, the more people there are to consume them. How does any of this really benefit the owners except they can gaze proudly on their possessions?

These are my thoughts.
Owning much means little unless you use it to help others.
