1 Kings 10:27
And the king caused silver in Jerusalem to be as stones, - cedars also, caused he to be as the sycamores that are in the lowlands, for abundance.
Shall not, these, all of them, against him, take up - a taunt, a mocking poem, enigmatical sentences - concerning him? And say - Alas! for him who maketh abundance in what is not his own, How long? that he should be burdening himself with heavy debts?
Therefore did Tyre build a stronghold for herself, - and did heap up silver like dust, yea gold, like the mire of the lanes.
