Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And the wealthy person [should be happy] that he is humbled [by God], because he will pass away like a flower [blossoming] from grass.
[For actually] you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. What is your life? For you are [like] a mist that appears briefly and then vanishes.
1 John 2:17
And the world, with its [physical and material] desires, is passing away, but the person who does what God wants will continue to live forever.
