|Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith.
|Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.
|For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
|Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
|Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
|For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation?
|He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.
|When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes?
|The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.
|There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.
|But those riches perish by evil travail: and he begetteth a son, and there is nothing in his hand.
|As he came forth of his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.
|And this also is a sore evil, that in all points as he came, so shall he go: and what profit hath he that hath laboured for the wind?
|All his days also he eateth in darkness, and he hath much sorrow and wrath with his sickness.
|Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.
|Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
