Wealth (Sir 5:1-5:3)

“Do not rely on your wealth!

Do not say.

‘I have enough.’

Do not follow your inclination,

In pursuing the desires of your heart.

Do not follow your strength,

In pursuing the desires of your heart.

Do not say.

‘Who can have power over me?’

The Lord will surely punish you.”

Do not rely on your wealth. Do not say that you have enough wealth so that you can follow the powerful inclinations and desires of your heart. Do not say that no one has power over you. Then you surely will be punished by the Lord.
