Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
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?

New American Standard Bible
When good things increase, those who consume them increase. So what is the advantage to their owners except to look on?

King James Bible
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?
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
When possessions increase, so does the number of consumers; therefore what good are they to their owners, except to look at them?

American Standard Version
When goods increase, they are increased that eat them; and what advantage is there to the owner thereof, save the beholding of them with his eyes?

Young's Literal Translation
In the multiplying of good have its consumers been multiplied, and what benefit is to its possessor except the sight of his eyes?
