But trouble is in the income of the wicked.
To endow those who love me with wealth,
That I may fill their treasuries.
“For he has oppressed and forsaken the poor;
He has seized a house which he has not built.
Better is the little of the righteous
Than the abundance of many wicked.
Wealth and riches are in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.

Than great treasure and turmoil with it.
Better is a little with righteousness
Than great income with injustice.

But a foolish man swallows it up.
One hand full of rest is better than two fists full of labor and striving after wind.
He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its income. This too is vanity.
considering the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt; for he was looking to the reward.
Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you.
