Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath,
but righteousness delivers from death.
When a wicked man dies, his hope perishes;
all he expected from his power comes to nothing.
Do not wear yourself out to get rich;
have the wisdom to show restraint.
He who increases his wealth by exorbitant interest
amasses it for another,
who will be kind to the poor.
“Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.”
“He who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and he who gives gifts to the rich–both come to poverty.”
