Daily Bible Verse - 1/22/2008 - Ecclesiastes 5:10

NIV Whoever loves money never has money enough;
whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income.
This too is meaningless.
KJV He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.
NASB He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its income. This too is vanity.
Ecclesiastes 5:10

People who love money are never satisfied; they always want more. Wealth does not buy contentment.

Did you know?
The possession of wealth is not always the sign of God's favor. "Why does the way of the wicked prosper?" (
Jer. 12:1) became a familiar theme to the writers of the Old Testament. The popular view that wickedness brings poverty and goodness brings wealth is strongly opposed by the Book of Job.
