Job 22:2–3; 1 Corinthians 3:8; Galatians 6:5

aCan a man be profitable to God?

Surely he who is wise is profitable to himself.

Is it any pleasure to the Almighty if you are in the right,

or is it gain to him if you bmake your ways blameless?

He who plants and he who waters are one, and each owill receive his wages according to his labor.

For xeach will have to bear his own load.
