17 As for the rich in this world, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on uncertain riches but on God who richly furnishes us with everything to enjoy. 17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
18 They are to do good, to be rich in good deeds, liberal and generous, 18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
19 thus laying up for themselves a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life which is life indeed. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
