Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments, His judgments, and His statutes which I command you today, lest—when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them … when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God. For it is He who gives you power to get wealth.
Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep. § They did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; but it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them. § There are many who say, “Who will show us any good?” Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
1 Tim. 6:17; Deut. 8:11–12, 14, 18; Ps. 127:1–2; 44:3; 4:6
