Ecclesiastes 10:17-19 Common English Bible (CEB)

17 Happy is the land
    whose king is dignified
    and whose princes feast at the right time for energy,
        not for drunkenness.
18 Through laziness, the roof sags;
    through idle hands, the house leaks.
19 Feasts are made for laughter,
    wine cheers the living,
    and money answers everything.[a]
