4 Lazy hands will make you poor; hard-working hands will make you rich.
Proverbs 13:11 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
11 Wealth hastily gotten will dwindle,
but those who gather little by little will increase it.
9 But those who want to be rich fall into temptation and
are trapped by many senseless and harmful desires that
plunge people into ruin and destruction.
10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil,
and in their eagerness to be rich some have wandered away
from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains.
11 But as for you, man of God, shun all this; pursue righteousness,
godliness, faith, love, endurance, gentleness.

2 Those who think they know something do not yet know anything as they should.
26 He said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?”

and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”
28 And he said to him, “You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.”
