Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
Men are only a vapor; exalted men , an illusion. Weighed in the scales, they go up; together they are less than a vapor.

New American Standard Bible
Men of low degree are only vanity and men of rank are a lie; In the balances they go up; They are together lighter than breath.

King James Bible
Surely men of low degree [are] vanity, [and] men of high degree [are] a lie: to be laid in the balance, they [are] altogether [lighter] than vanity.
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
Human beings are a mere vapor, while people in high positions are not what they appear. When they are placed on the scales, they weigh nothing; even when weighed together, they are less than nothing.

American Standard Version
Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: In the balances they will go up; They are together lighter than vanity.

Young's Literal Translation
Only -- vanity are the low, a lie the high. In balances to go up they than vanity are lighter.
