5 Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.

Read Proverbs 23:5 Using Other Translations

Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
When your eyes light on it, it is gone, for suddenly it sprouts wings, flying like an eagle toward heaven.
In the blink of an eye wealth disappears, for it will sprout wings and fly away like an eagle.
