“A couetous mans eye is not satisfied with his portion, and the iniquity of the wicked dryeth vp his soule.”
King James Version (KJV)
6. There is none worse then he that enuieth himselfe; and this is a recompence of his wickednesse. 7. And if he doth good, he doth it vnwillingly, and at the last he will declare his wickednesse. 8. The enuious man hath a wicked eye, he turneth away his face and despiseth men. 9. A couetous mans eye is not satisfied with his portion, and the iniquity of the wicked dryeth vp his soule. 10. A wicked eye enuieth [his] bread, and he is a niggard at his table. 11. My sonne, according to thy habilitie doe good to thy selfe, and giue the Lord his due offering. 12. Remember that death will not be long in comming, and that the couenant of the graue is not shewed vnto thee.
