3.1 The Parable of the Rich Fool
15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought
17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room
where to bestow my fruits?
18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and
there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take
thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee:
then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich,
when the glory of his house is increased;
17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away:
his glory shall not descend after him.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world,
and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
