Proverbs 30:9

9 If I'm too full, I might get independent, saying, 'God? Who needs him?' If I'm poor, I might steal and dishonor the name of my God."

Proverbs 30:9 In-Context

7 And then he prayed, "God, I'm asking for two things before I die; don't refuse me -
8 Banish lies from my lips and liars from my presence. Give me enough food to live on, neither too much nor too little.
9 If I'm too full, I might get independent, saying, 'God? Who needs him?' If I'm poor, I might steal and dishonor the name of my God."
10 Don't blow the whistle on your fellow workers behind their backs; They'll accuse you of being underhanded, and then you'll be the guilty one!
11 Don't curse your father or fail to bless your mother.
