2 Chronicles 31:21
In everything that he undertook in the service of God's temple and in obedience to the law and the commands, he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered.
Our barns will be filled with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields;
A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
You have not brought me sheep for burnt offerings, nor honored me with your sacrifices. I have not burdened you with grain offerings nor wearied you with demands for incense.
