CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
The covetous temper leads not only to dishonesty, but to the "evil eye" of envy; and the temper of grudging, carking care, leads him to poverty.
"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." Proverbs 28:13. The conditions of obtaining mercy of God are simple and just and reasonable. The Lord does not require us to do some grievous thing in order that we may have the forgiveness of sin. We need not make long and wearisome pilgrimages, or perform painful penances, to commend our souls to the God of heaven or to expiate our transgression; but he that confesseth and forsaketh his sin …
Ellen Gould White—Steps to Christ
The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage, But everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty.
He who oppresses the poor to make more for himself Or who gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.
Do not eat the bread of a selfish man, Or desire his delicacies;
A faithful man will abound with blessings, But he who makes haste to be rich will not go unpunished.
