Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
Dishonest money dwindles away,
but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Honor the Lord with your wealth,
with the firstfruits of all your crops.
Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
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.
After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before.
