Proverbs 11:28

Proverbs 11:28

He that trusteth in his riches shall fall
As leaves in autumn, which are withered and dry. To trust in riches is to trust in uncertain things; things not to be depended on, being here today and gone tomorrow; it is like leaning upon a broken staff, which giving way, the person falls: and so the fall of Babylon will be, while she is trusting in and boasting of her riches and grandeur, ( Revelation 18:7 Revelation 18:8 ) ; but the righteous shall flourish as a branch;
that abides in the tree, is alive and green, full of leaves, and laden with fruit: so the righteous are as branches in Christ, and receive life and nourishment from him, and abide in him; and bring forth fruit and flourish, like palm trees and cedars, in the house of the Lord, and grow in every grace, and in the knowledge of Christ; see ( Jeremiah 17:7 Jeremiah 17:8 ) .
