Ecclesiastes 10:17-19 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

17 But it is very good for a country if the king comes from a good family.[a] And it is very good for a country if the rulers control their eating and drinking. They eat and drink to become strong, not to become drunk.

18 If someone is too lazy to work,
    their house will begin to leak, and the roof will fall in.

19 People enjoy eating, and wine makes life happier. But money solves a lot of problems.
