23 But I didn’t do any of these bad things.
    I fear God’s punishment too much.
    His majesty scares me.[a]

24 “I have never trusted in riches.
    I never said even to pure gold, ‘You are my hope.’
25 I have been wealthy,
    but that didn’t make me proud.
I earned a lot of money,
    but that is not what made me happy.
