The fate of rulers (Sir 11:5-11:6)

“Many kings have had to sit on the ground.

But one who was never thought of has worn a crown.

Many rulers have been greatly disgraced.

The honored ones have been handed over to others.”

Many kings have had to sit on the ground. Then there have been some strange people who have worn the kingly crown. Some rulers have been disgraced. Even honored people have been handed over to others. There is no certainty in being a ruler.
