Parallel Verses
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.

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.
