Verse 9

Grabbing and stuffing-
     there is no end to it

Sharpen a blade too much
     and its edge will soon be lost
Fill a house with gold and jade
     and no one can protect it
Puff yourself with honor and pride
     and no one can save you from a fall

Complete the task at hand
Be selfless in your actions
     This is the way of Heaven
     This is the way to Heaven
