Tobit 4:9

“For thou layest vp a good treasure for thy selfe against the day of necessitie.”

King James Version (KJV)

Tobit 4:9

6. For if thou deale truely, thy doings shall prosperously succeed to thee, and to all them that liue iustly. 7. Giue almes of thy substance, and when thou giuest almes, let not thine eye be enuious, neither turne thy face from any poore, and the face of God shall not be turned away from thee. 8. If thou hast abundance, giue almes accordingly: if thou haue but a litle, be not afraid to giue according to that litle. 9. For thou layest vp a good treasure for thy selfe against the day of necessitie. 10. Because that almes doth deliuer from death, and suffereth not to come into darknesse. 11. For almes is a good gift vnto all that giue it, in the sight of the most High. 12. Beware of all whoredome, my sonne, and chiefely take a wife of the seed of thy fathers, and take not a strange woman to wife, which is not of thy fathers tribe: for we are the children of the Prophets, Noe, Abraham, Isaak, and Iacob: remember, my sonne, that our fathers from the beginning, euen that they all maried wiues of their owne kinred, and were blessed in their children, and their seede shall inherite the land.
