to be laid in the balance they are altogether lighter than vanity. Psalm 62:9     Vanity of vanities, behold, Ecclesiastes 1:2     all is vanity and vexation of spirit. Ecclesiastes 1:14


Seekest thou great things for thy self? seek them not. Jeremiah 45:5     And why wilt thou put far away the evil day, Amos 6:3     or covet to set thy nest on high? Behold the day cometh that shall burn as an oven; Malachi 4:1     and though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord. Obadiah 1:4


Why sayest thou to thy soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years, take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry; Luke 12:19     and tomorrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant? Isaiah 56:12     when thou knowest not what shall be on the morrow. For what is our life? It is even a vapour that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away; James 4:14     yea, this night thy soul may be required of thee; then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? Luke 12:20



Be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God; 1 Timothy 6:17     for riches profit not in the day of wrath, Proverbs 11:4     and he that trusteth in his riches shall fall. Proverbs 11:28     Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? Riches certainly make themselves wings, they fly away. Proverbs 23:5     Labour not then for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life; John 6:27     and lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven; for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:19


They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercies. Jonah 2:8     Therefore hear now this thou that art given to pleasure, that dwellest carelessly. Isaiah 47:8     Wilt thou go in company with the workers of iniquity, and walk with wicked men? Job 34:8     And when thou criest, shall thy companies deliver thee? The wind shall carry them all away, vanity shall take them; Isaiah 57:13     miserable comforters are they all. Job 16:2     Fools make a mock at sin, Proverbs 14:9     and a companion of fools
