Sirach 13:24
Wealth is good as long as it’s free of sin; the ungodly speak of poverty as an evil in and of itself.
And as humility is an abomination to the proud: so also the rich man abhorreth the poor.
There is nothing wrong with being rich if you haven't sinned to get that way. But there is nothing sinful about being poor, either. Only the ungodly think so.
Wealth is good where there is no sin; but poverty is evil by the standards of the proud.
Riches are good if they are free from sin; poverty is evil only in the opinion of the ungodly.
Riches are good if they are free from sin; poverty is evil only in the opinion of the ungodly.
Riches are good if they are free from sin; poverty is evil only in the opinion of the ungodly.
Riches are good if they are free from sin; poverty is evil only in the opinion of the ungodly.
Riches are good if they are free from sin, and poverty is evil in the opinion of the ungodly.
Riches are good if they are free from sin, and poverty is evil in the opinion of the ungodly.
Chattel is good to him, to whom is no sin in conscience; and the worst poverty is in the mouth of a wicked man. [Good is substance, to whom is not sin in conscience; and most wicked is poorness in the mouth of the unpious.]
