Ecclesiastes 10:17-19 World English Bible (WEB)

17 Happy are you, land, when your king is the son of nobles,
    and your princes eat in due season,
    for strength, and not for drunkenness!
18 By slothfulness the roof sinks in;
    and through idleness of the hands the house leaks.
19 A feast is made for laughter,
    and wine makes the life glad;
    and money is the answer for all things.

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.
