Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation 

Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways and be wise:which having no chief, overseer, or ruler,provideth her bread in the summer, [and] gathereth her food in the harvest.How long, sluggard, wilt thou lie down? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest!11 So shall thy poverty come as a roving plunderer, and thy penury as an armed man.”

Proverbs 26:14-15 14 [As] the door turneth upon its hinges, so the sluggard upon his bed.15 The sluggard burieth his hand in the dish: it wearieth him to bring it again to his mouth.

Proverbs 20:4 The sluggard will not plough by reason of the winter; he shall beg in harvest, and have nothing.”

Proverbs 24:30-33 30 I went by the field of a sluggard, and by the vineyard of a man void of understanding;

31 and lo, it was all grown over with thistles, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and its stone wall was broken down.32 Then I looked, I took it to heart; I saw, I received instruction:

33 —A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest!34 So shall thy poverty come [as] a roving plunderer, and thy penury as an armed man.”

Matthew 6:19-20 “19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust spoils, and where thieves dig through and steal;

20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust spoils, and where thieves do not dig through nor steal;21 for where thy treasure is, there will be also thy heart.

Matthew 5:3-12Blessed [are] the poor in spirit, for *theirs* is the kingdom of the heavens.Blessed they that mourn, for *they* shall be comforted.

Blessed the meek, for *they* shall inherit the earth.Blessed they who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for *they* shall be filled.Blessed the merciful, for *they* shall find mercy.Blessed the pure in heart, for *they* shall see God.

Blessed the peace-makers, for *they* shall be called sons of God.10 Blessed they who are persecuted on account of righteousness, for *theirs* is the kingdom of the heavens.11 Blessed are ye when they may reproach and persecute you, and say every wicked thing against you, lying, for my sake.12 Rejoice and exult, for your reward is great in the heavens; for thus have they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

Exodus 33:1515 And he said to him, If thy presence do not go, bring us not up hence.”

Psalm 84:1-2How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Jehovah of hosts!My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of Jehovah; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.”

Psalm 84:1010 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God, than dwell in the tents of wickedness.”

Luke 2:36-3836 And there was a prophetess, Anna, daughter of Phanuel, of [the] tribe of Asher, who was far advanced in years, having lived with [her] husband seven years from her virginity,

37 and herself a widow up to eighty-four years; who did not depart from the temple, serving night and day with fastings and prayers;38 and she coming up the same hour gave praise to the Lord, and spoke of him to all those who waited for redemption in Jerusalem.”

Romans 13:11-1411 This also, knowing the time, that it is already time that *we* should be aroused out of sleep; for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed.

12 The night is far spent, and the day is near; let us cast away therefore the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.13 As in the day, let us walk becomingly; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and lasciviousness, not in strife and emulation.14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not take forethought for the flesh to [fulfil its] lusts.”

1 Timothy 6:9-19But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and many unwise and hurtful lusts, which plunge men into destruction and ruin.10 For the love of money is [the] root of every evil; which some having aspired after, have wandered from the faith, and pierced themselves with many sorrows.11 But *thou*, O man of God, flee these things, and pursue righteousness, piety, faith, love, endurance, meekness of spirit.

12 Strive earnestly [in] the good conflict of faith. Lay hold of eternal life, to which thou hast been called, and hast confessed the good confession before many witnesses.

13 I enjoin thee before God who preserves all things in life, and Christ Jesus who witnessed before Pontius Pilate the good confession,14 that thou keep the commandment spotless, irreproachable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ;

15 which in its own time the blessed and only Ruler shall shew, the King of those that reign, and Lord of those that exercise lordship;

16 who only has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light; whom no man has seen, nor is able to see; to whom [be] honour and eternal might. Amen.17 Enjoin on those rich in the present age not to be high-minded, nor to trust on the uncertainty of riches; but in the God who affords us all things richly for [our] enjoyment;

18 to do good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal in distributing, disposed to communicate [of their substance],19 laying by for themselves a good foundation for the future, that they may lay hold of [what is] really life.”
