“Riches are not comely for a niggard: and what should an enuious man doe with money?”
King James Version (KJV)
1. Blessed is the man that hath not slipt with his mouth, and is not pricked with the multitude of sinnes. 2. Blessed is hee whose conscience hath not condemned him, and who is not fallen from his hope in the Lord. 3. Riches are not comely for a niggard: and what should an enuious man doe with money? 4. He that gathereth by defrauding his owne soule, gathereth for others, that shall spend his goods riotously. 5. Hee that is euill to himselfe, to whom will he be good? he shall not take pleasure in his goods. 6. There is none worse then he that enuieth himselfe; and this is a recompence of his wickednesse.
