9 Men * of 1low * degree * are only 2vanity and men * of rank are a 3lie; In the 4balances they go up; They are together lighter than breath.
10 5Do not trust in oppression And do not vainly hope in 6robbery; If riches increase, 7do not set your heart upon them.
11 Once God has 8spoken; Twice I have heard this: That 9power belongs to God;
12 And lovingkindness 10is Yours, O Lord, For You 11recompense a man according to his work.
