Ecclesiastes 5: The woes of money

Get it together Solomon, the king muttered to himself. Remember your oaths to others! And stop whining! It’s pointless…. Everything’s pointless. I try to rule well, but half my officials are corrupt. And I profit from their corruption. Money. What a joke! You never have enough. The more you have, the more you want. And then you start oppressing and sinning just to get more. You should just be happy to have enough to survive. More than that is pointless.
