“An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed” (Proverbs 20:21).

“He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough. A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent…He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him” (Proverbs 28:19-20, 22).

As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool” (Jeremiah 17:11).
