Job 31:24; Psalm 49:6; Psalm 52:7; Proverbs 11:28; 1 Timothy 6:17

24  yIf I have made gold my ztrust

or called afine gold my confidence,

those who ntrust in their wealth

and boast of the abundance of their riches?

See the man who would not make

God his refuge,

but ltrusted in the abundance of his riches

and sought refuge in his own destruction!1

28  Whoever strusts in his riches will fall,

but the righteous will tflourish like a green leaf.

17 As for the rich in athis present age, charge them bnot to be haughty, nor cto set their hopes on dthe uncertainty of riches, but on God, ewho richly provides us with everything to enjoy.
