Ecclesiastes 10:5-7

MSG 5 Here's a piece of bad business I've seen on this earth, An error that can be blamed on whoever is in charge: NIV 5 There is an evil I have seen under the sun, the sort of error that arises from a ruler: MSG 6 Immaturity is given a place of prominence, While maturity is made to take a back seat. NIV 6 Fools are put in many high positions, while the rich occupy the low ones. MSG 7 I've seen unproven upstarts riding in style, While experienced veterans are put out to pasture. NIV 7 I have seen slaves on horseback, while princes go on foot like slaves.
