1:10 But the rich person’s pride should be in his humiliation, because he will pass away like a wildflower in the meadow. 1
1:11 For the sun rises with its heat and dries up the meadow; the petal of the flower falls off and its beauty is lost forever. 2 So also the rich person in the midst of his pursuits will wither away.
1 tn Grk “a flower of grass.”
