Ecclesiastes 10:17-19 The Message (MSG)

16-17 Unlucky the land whose king is a young pup,
And whose princes party all night.
Lucky the land whose king is mature,
Where the princes behave themselves
And don’t drink themselves silly.

18 A shiftless man lives in a tumbledown shack;
    A lazy woman ends up with a leaky roof.

19 Laughter and bread go together,
And wine gives sparkle to life—
But it’s money that makes the world go around.

The Message (MSG)
