So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain [persons] shall have poverty enough.
So shall thy poverty come [as] one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.
[Yet] a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe [a man] with rags.
Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, [and] thou shalt be satisfied with bread.
Better [is] an handful [with] quietness, than both the hands full [with] travail and vexation of spirit.
Better [is] a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.
Better [is] little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith.
The rich man's wealth [is] his strong city: the destruction of the poor [is] their poverty.
Lest I be full, and deny [thee], and say, Who [is] the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God [in vain].
