How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!
A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
Rich and poor have this in common: The LORD is the Maker of them all.
Do not wear yourself out to get rich; do not trust your own cleverness.
Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.
A faithful person will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished.
“Two things I ask of you, LORD; do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the LORD?’ Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.
Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
The greedy bring ruin to their households, but the one who hates bribes will live.
Food gained by fraud tastes sweet, but one ends up with a mouth full of gravel.
A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.
One who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and one who gives gifts to the rich—both come to poverty.
Better the poor whose walk is blameless than the rich whose ways are perverse.
Whoever increases wealth by taking interest or profit from the poor amasses it for another, who will be kind to the poor.
Whoever robs their father or mother and says, “It’s not wrong,” is partner to one who destroys.
Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;
then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.
Those who trust in their riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.
Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.
