1. Believe, ye righteous, that the sinners will become a shame and perish in the day of unrighteousness. 2. Be it known unto you (ye sinners) that the Most High is mindful of your destruction, and the angels of heaven rejoice over your destruction.
3. What will ye do, ye sinners, and whither will ye flee on that day of judgement, when ye hear the voice of the prayer of the righteous? 4. Yea, ye shall fare like unto them, against whom this word shall be a testimony: "Ye have been companions of sinners." 5. And in those days the prayer of the righteous shall reach unto the Lord, and for you the days of your judgement shall come.
6. And all the words of your unrighteousness shall be read out before the Great Holy One, and your faces shall be covered with shame, and He will reject every work which is grounded on unrighteousness. 7. Woe to you, ye sinners, who live on the mid ocean and on the dry land, whose remembrance is evil against you.
8. Woe to you who acquire silver and gold in unrighteousness and say: "We have become rich with riches and have possessions; And have acquired everything we have desired. 9. And now let us do what we purposed: For we have gathered silver, and many are the husbandmen in our houses." and our granaries are (brim) full as with water, 10 Yea and like water your lies shall flow away; For your riches shall not abide but speedily ascend from you; For ye have acquired it all in unrighteousness, and ye shall be given over to a great curse.
13 Then someone from the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” 14 But Jesus said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or arbitrator between you two?” 15 Then he said to them, “Watch out and guard yourself from all types of greed because one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” 16 He then told them a parable: “The land of a certain rich man produced an abundant crop, 17 so he thought to himself, ‘What should I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ 18 Then he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to myself, “You have plenty of goods stored up for many years; relax, eat, drink, celebrate!”’ 20 But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded back from you, but who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ 21 So it is with the one who stores up riches for himself, but is not rich toward God.”
