Proverbs 1:10-19Romans 3:15 is very similar to verse 16. Greed steals a person's life. Compare 1:19 with 1 Timothy 6:10 and contrast it with Matthew 6:33 & Hebrews 13:5.
My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause: Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit: We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil: Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood. Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives. So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.
Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.
In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.
Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.
Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.
Divers weights are an abomination unto the LORD; and a false balance is not good.
The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.
Proverbs 28:8Cross Reference: Exodus 22:25, Leviticus 25:36 Prov 13:22. Ill-gotten gain doesn't last.
He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.
