Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.
King James Bible
He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.
American Standard Version
He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance, with increase: this also is vanity.
Young's Literal Translation
Whoso is loving silver is not satisfied with silver, nor he who is in love with stores with increase. Even this is vanity.
Ecclesiastes 5:10 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
