17 Instruct those who are rich in 1this present world 2not to be conceited or to 3fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, 4who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.
18 Instruct them to do good, to be rich in 5good works, 6to be generous and ready to share,
19 7storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may 8take hold of that which is life indeed.
