But piety with contentment is great gain,
For bodily exercise is profitable for a little, but piety is profitable for all things, having promise of the present life, and of that which is coming.
The Way of life is to be without love of money, being content with the things that are present, for he has said, I will, no, not leave thee, and also, I will, no, not forsake thee.
Better is little with the fear of LORD, than great treasure and trouble with it.
Better is a little, with righteousness, than great revenues with injustice.
Not that I speak regarding need, for I have learned in what things I am to be content.
For LORD God is a sun and a shield. LORD will give grace and glory. He will withhold no good thing from those who walk uprightly.
Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gets understanding.
Riches and honor are with me, durable wealth and righteousness.
For the Gentiles seek after all these things, for your heavenly Father knows that ye need all these things.
And men who were soldiers also questioned him, saying, And we, what should we do? And he said to them, Do violence to no man, nor accuse falsely, and be content with your wages.
However, seek ye the kingdom of God, and all these things will be added to you.
And not only so, but we also take pride in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance,
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, who are the called according to purpose.
For our slight momentary affliction works for us an eternal weight of glory from extraordinariness to extraordinariness,
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
