Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of the spirit.
For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.
Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
1 Timothy 6:17-19
The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep. There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt. But those riches perish by evil travail: and he begetteth a son, and there is nothing in his hand.
But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty. So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.
For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.
A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.
They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.
He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.
He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.
He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
The rich and poor meet together: the Lord is the maker of them all.
He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.
Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith.
Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
