Ecclesiastes 10:17-19 New Life Version (NLV)

17 Happy are you, O land, when your king is from parents who have ruled, and your princes eat at the right time, for strength and not to get drunk. 18 When men are lazy, the roof begins to fall in. When they will do no work, the rain comes into the house. 19 Food is made ready to be enjoyed, wine makes life happy, but money is the answer to everything.

Ecclesiastes 10:17-19 New International Version (NIV)

17 Blessed is the land whose king is of noble birth
    and whose princes eat at a proper time—
    for strength and not for drunkenness.

18 Through laziness, the rafters sag;
    because of idle hands, the house leaks.

19 A feast is made for laughter,
    wine makes life merry,
    and money is the answer for everything.
