What does Ecclesiastes 5:11 mean?
ESV: When goods increase, they increase who eat them, and what advantage has their owner but to see them with his eyes?
NIV: As goods increase, so do those who consume them. And what benefit are they to the owners except to feast their eyes on them?
NASB: When good things increase, those who consume them increase. So what is the advantage to their owners except to look at them?
CSB: When good things increase, the ones who consume them multiply; what, then, is the profit to the owner, except to gaze at them with his eyes?
NLT: The more you have, the more people come to help you spend it. So what good is wealth — except perhaps to watch it slip through your fingers!
KJV: When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes?
NKJV: When goods increase, They increase who eat them; So what profit have the owners Except to see them with their eyes?
