[ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
- 16 Woe to you, O land, whose king R266 is a lad and whose princes feast F137 in the morning. 17 Blessed are you, O land, whose king is of nobility and whose princes eat at the appropriate time--for strength and not for drunkenness. R267 18 Through indolence R268 the rafters sag, and through slackness the house leaks. 19 Men prepare a meal for enjoyment, and wine R269 makes life merry, and money R270 is F138 the answer to everything. 20 Furthermore, in R271 your bedchamber do not curse R272 a king, and in your sleeping rooms do not curse a rich man, for a bird of the heavens will carry the sound and the winged creature will make the matter known.
