Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
The treasures of lawlessness, do not profit, but, righteousness, delivereth from death.
Wealth gotten by greed, diminisheth, but, he that gathereth by little, increaseth.
Bad! bad! saith the buyer, but, going his way, then, he boasteth.
He that soweth perversity, shall reap trouble, and, the rod of his wrath, shall be ready.
Vanity and falsehood, remove far from me, Neither poverty nor riches, give me, Feed me with the food appointed me:
As a partridge gathereth eggs she did not lay, So is he that maketh riches but not with justice, - In the midst of his days, shall he leave them, And in his latter end, prove to have been base.
1 Timothy 6:9
But, they who are determined to be rich, fall into temptation, and a snare, and many foolish and hurtful covetings, the which, sink men into ruin and destruction, -
Whose mouths must needs be stopped, men who are upsetting whole houses, teaching the things which ought not to be taught - for the sake of base gain.
2 Peter 2:3
And, in greed, with forged words, will they, of you, make merchandise: for whom, the sentence from of old, is not idle, and, their destruction, doth not slumber.
