9Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.
10But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower.
11For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business.
