Habakkuk 2:5
Good News Translation
Wealth is deceitful. Greedy people are proud and restless--like death itself they are never satisfied. That is why they conquer nation after nation for themselves.

Contemporary English Version
Wine is treacherous, and arrogant people are never satisfied. They are no less greedy than death itself--they open their mouths as wide as the world of the dead and swallow everyone.

Douay-Rheims Bible
And as wine deceiveth him that drinketh it: so shall the proud man be, and he shall not be honoured: who hath enlarged his desire like hell: and is himself like death, and he is never satisfied: but will gather together unto him all nations, and heap together unto him all people.
