Do not be overawed when a man grows rich, when the splendour of his house increases;
Do not be afraid when a man becomes rich, When the glory of his house is increased;
So don’t be dismayed when the wicked grow rich, and their homes become ever more splendid.
So don't be impressed with those who get rich and pile up fame and fortune.
Have no fear when wealth comes to a man, and the glory of his house is increased;
Do not be afraid when some become rich, when the wealth of their houses increases.
Do not be afraid when one becomes rich, When the glory of his house is increased;
