Ecclesiastes 10:5-7

NLT 5 There is another evil I have seen as I have watched the world go by. Kings and rulers make a grave mistake NIV 5 There is an evil I have seen under the sun, the sort of error that arises from a ruler: NLT 6 if they give foolish people great authority, and if they fail to give people of proven worth their rightful place of dignity. NIV 6 Fools are put in many high positions, while the rich occupy the low ones. NLT 7 I have even seen servants riding like princes -- and princes walking like servants. NIV 7 I have seen slaves on horseback, while princes go on foot like slaves.
