Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s

Today is November 3, 2018 - in the 21 Century

November -- the nineth month - now it is the 11th month

Middle English Novembre

Novembris had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 30 days long.

***Daylight savings time ends Sat. evening (Sunday) Fall back 1 hour.

 Yehovah has His own calendar:

We are now in the 8th month called Bool, day 24, not Cheshvan or Mar Cheshvan as Judaism and some Messianics say.

1Kgs.6 [38]… in the month Bul / Bool, which is the eighth month

 Today’s Topic:

Treasures, riches

 some good , some bad

People are always looking for the treasure, the riches

There is much to do and said about treasures and riches in stories, video games, hunts, websites, etc…

What does scripture say about treasure, riches?

Let’s review:

I see below we should be a type of treasure

Exod.19 [5] Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

[6] And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

Peter has similar words:

1Pet.2 [9] But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: [10] Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

1Pet.5 [5] Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

God has many treasures

Deut.28 [12] Yehovah shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.

Deut.32[34] Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?

Job.38 [22] Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, [23] Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?


Pss.17 [13] Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
14] From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
15] As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

Pss.135[4] For Yehovah hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.

Prov.2 [1] My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
2] So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
3] Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4] If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
5] Then shalt thou understand the fear of Yehovah, and find the knowledge of God.

Prov.8 [17] I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
18] Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.
19] My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. [20] I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:[21] That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.

Prov.10 [2] Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.

Prov.15 [6] In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

[16] Better is little with the fear of Yehovah than great treasure and trouble therewith.

Prov.21 [6] The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

[20] There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.

Isa.33 [6] And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of Yehovah is his treasure.

Isa.45 [1] Thus saith Yehovah to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;
2] I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
3] And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, Yehovah, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

Jer.10 [13] When He uttereth His voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.

Jer.48 [7] For because thou hast trusted in thy works and in thy treasures, thou shalt also be taken

Jer.49 [4] Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys, thy flowing valley, O backsliding daughter? that trusted in her treasures, saying, Who shall come unto me?

Jer.50 [37] A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.

Jer.51 [13] O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness.


The precious words of Messiah Yeshua

Matt.6[19] Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:[20] But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:[21] For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

[22] The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

[23] But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24] No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25] Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26] Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27] Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28] And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29] And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30] Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31] Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32] (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34] Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Matt.12 [34] O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. [35] A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. [36] But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37] For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Matt.13 [44] Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

[52] Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

Matt.19 [20] The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? [21] Yeshua said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. [22] But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

Luke.6 [45] A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Luke.12 [15] And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

[16] And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
17] And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
18] And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19] And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20] But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? [21] So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

[22] And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
23] The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
24] Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
25] And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
26] If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
27] Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
28] If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
29] And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
30] For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31] But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
32] Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

 [33] Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.[34] For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Matt.13[22] He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

Mark.4 [18] And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,[19] And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

Luke.8 [14] And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.

Matt.19[23] Then said Yeshua unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.[24] And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Mark.10 [23] And Yeshua looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God![24] And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Yeshua answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God![25] It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Luke.6 [22] Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.[23] Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

Luke.14 [12] Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee. [13] But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:[14] And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.


Jas.1 [9] Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: [10] But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.[11] For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways

Jas.2[5] 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

Jas.5 [1] Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
2] Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. [3] Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. [4] Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of Yehovah of sabaoth.
5] Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
6] Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
7] Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of Yehovah. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
8] Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of Yehovah draweth nigh.

[9] Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
10] Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of Yehovah, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
11] Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of Yehovah; that Yehovah is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

Jas.4… God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.


We all need to remember, we are but grass, dust – life is short

Gen.18 [27] And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto Yehovah, which am but dust and ashes

Pss.103 [14] For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

[15] As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
[16] For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
[17] But the mercy of Yehovah is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
[18] To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

Isa.40 [6] The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:  [7] The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of Yehovah bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.[8] The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

1Pet.1 [24] For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:[25] But the word of Yehovah endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

Pss.103 [15] As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. [16] For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

1Tim.6 [3] If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Yeshua Messiah, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
4] He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
5] Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

[6] But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7] For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8] And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

[9] But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

[10] For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

[11] But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12] Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.


Job.27 [19] The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not.

Pss.37 [16] A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

Pss.39 [5] Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah. [6] Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them. [7] And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.

Pss.49 [1] Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world: [2] Both low and high, rich and poor, together.

[3] My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
4] I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
5] Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?

[6] They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;[16] Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased; [7] None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:
8] (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)
9] That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.
10] For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
11] Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.
12] Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.

Pss.52 [1] Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God endureth continually.
2] Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp rasor, working deceitfully.
3] Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.
4] Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.
5] God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.
6] The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:

[7] Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.

[8] But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
9] I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.

Pss.62 [9] Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity. [10] Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.

Pss.73 [1] Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
2] But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
3] For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4] For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.
5] They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
6] Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
7] Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
8] They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
9] They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
10] Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
11] And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?

[12] Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.

Pss.104 [24] Yehovah how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

Pss.112 [1] Praise ye Yehovah. Blessed is the man that feareth Yehovah, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2] His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

[3] Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever. [4] Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5] A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

Prov. 3 [13] Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
14] For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
15] She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

[16] Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. [17] Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
18] She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

Prov.8 [10] Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.
11] For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
12] I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
13] The fear of Yehovah is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
14] Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
15] By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
16] By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
17] I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. [18] Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. [19] My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
20] I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:
21] That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.

Prov.10 [4] He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.

[15] The rich man's wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty.

[22] The blessing of Yehovah, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

Prov.11 [4] Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.

[16] A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong men retain riches.

[28] He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.

Prov.13[7] There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.

[8] The ransom of a man's life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke.

Prov.14[20] The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.

[24] The crown of the wise is their riches: but the foolishness of fools is folly.

Prov.18[11] The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.

[23] The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.

Prov.19 [14] House and riches are the inheritance of fathers and a prudent wife is from Yehovah.

Prov.21 [17] He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.

Prov.22 [1] A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.[2] The rich and poor meet together: Yehovah is the maker of them all.

[4] By humility and the fear of Yehovah are riches, and honour, and life.

[7] The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

[16] He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.

Prov.23[4] Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.

[5] Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

Prov.24 [4] And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Prov.27 [24] For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation?

Prov.28 [6] Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.

[11] The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.

[20] A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

[22] He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.

Prov.30 [5] Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
6] Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

[7] Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die: [8] Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: [8] Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
9] Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is Yehovah? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.

Ecc.4[8] … neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.

Ecc.5[12] 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.

[13] There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.[14] But those riches perish by evil travail: and he begetteth a son, and there is nothing in his hand. [15] As he came forth of his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.

[18] Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.

[19] Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God. [20] For he shall not much remember the days of his life; because God answereth him in the joy of his heart.

Ecc.9[11] I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

Jer.9 [23] Thus saith Yehovah, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: [24] But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am Yehovah which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith Yehovah.

Phil.4[19]…my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Messiah Yeshua.

The proud, pride

Pss.10[2] The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.

[4] The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.

Pss.36[11] Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.

Prov.8 [13] The fear of Yehovah is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Prov.11[2] When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.

Prov.13[10] Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.

Prov.14[3] In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.

Pss.12[3] Yehovah shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:

Pss.31[18] Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

[23] O love Yehovah, all ye his saints: for Yehovah preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.

Pss.40[4] Blessed is that man that maketh Yehovah his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

Pss.86[14] O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.

Pss.101[5] Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.

Pss.119[21] Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.

[51] The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from thy law.

[69] The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.

[78] Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.

[85] The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law.

[122] Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.

Pss.138[6] Though Yehovah be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.

Prov.6 [16] These six things doth Yehovah hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17] A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18] An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19] A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Prov.15[25] Yehovah will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.

Prov.16[5] Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to Yehovah: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

[19] Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Prov.21[4] An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.

[24] Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.

Prov.28[25] He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in Yehovah shall be made fat.

Ecc.7[8] Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.


Rom.2 [5] But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;[6] Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
7] To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
8] But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
9] Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
10] But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
11] For there is no respect of persons with God.
[12] For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;
13] (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

Col.2 [1] For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;
2] That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Messiah; [3] In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Heb.11 [24] By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
25] Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; [26] Esteeming the reproach of Messiah greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. [27] By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
28] Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
29] By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

2Tim.3 [1] This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2] For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3] Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4] Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5] Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Luke.16 [19] There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20] And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
21] And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
22] And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23] And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24] And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
25] But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26] And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
27] Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
28] For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
29] Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30] And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
31] And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

In closing, remember:

1John.2 [16] For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. [17] And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Shabbat Shalom
