[22] L’uomo con l’occhio cattivo vuole arricchire in fretta, ma non si rende conto che gli piomberà addosso la miseria.[23] Chi riprende qualcuno troverà poi maggior favore di chi lo adula con la lingua.[24] Chi ruba a suo padre e a sua madre e dice: »Non è peccato«, è compagno di chi distrugge.[25] Chi ha il cuore gonfio d’orgoglio fomenta contese, ma chi confida nell’Eterno prospererà.[26] Chi confida nel proprio cuore è uno stolto, ma chi cammina saggiamente sarà salvato.[27] Chi dà al povero non sarà mai nel bisogno, ma colui che chiude i propri occhi avrà molte maledizioni.

[1] A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. I look up to the hills. Where does my help come from?[2] My help comes from the Lord. He is the Maker of heaven and earth.

Marco 11:22-23
[22] "Have faith in God," Jesus said.[23] "What I'm about to tell you is true. Suppose one of you says to this mountain, 'Go and throw yourself into the sea.' You must not doubt in your heart. You must believe that what you say will happen. Then it will be done for you.

Genesi 1:26-27
[26] Then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness. Let them rule over the fish in the waters and the birds of the air. Let them rule over the livestock and over the whole earth. Let them rule over all of the creatures that move along the ground."[27] So God created man in his own likeness. He created him in the likeness of God. He created them as male and female.

2 Corinzi 9:6-8
[6] Here is something to remember. The one who plants only a little will gather only a little. And the one who plants a lot will gather a lot.[7] You should each give what you have decided in your heart to give. You shouldn't give if you don't want to. You shouldn't give because you are forced to. God loves a cheerful giver.[8] And God is able to shower all kinds of blessings on you. In all things and at all times you will have everything you need. You will do more and more good works.

Luca 14:28-30
[28] "Suppose someone wants to build a tower. Won't he sit down first and figure out how much it will cost? Then he will see whether he has enough money to finish it.[29] Suppose he starts building and is not able to finish. Then everyone who sees what he has done will laugh at him.[30] They will say, 'This fellow started to build. But he wasn't able to finish.'

Luca 6:34-36
[34] And suppose you lend money to those who can pay you back. Should anyone praise you for that? Even a 'sinner' lends to 'sinners,' expecting them to pay everything back.[35] "But love your enemies. Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then you will receive a lot in return. And you will be sons of the Most High God. He is kind to people who are evil and are not thankful.[36] So have mercy, just as your Father has mercy.

Giacomo 5:1-3
[1] You rich people, listen to me. Cry and sob, because you will soon be suffering.[2] Your riches have rotted. Moths have eaten your clothes.[3] Your gold and silver have lost their brightness. Their dullness will give witness against you. Your wanting more and more will eat your body like fire. You have stored up riches in these last days.

Genesi 12:1-20
[1] The Lord had said to Abram, "Leave your country and your people. Leave your father's family. Go to the land I will show you.[2] "I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you. I will make your name great. You will be a blessing to others.[3] I will bless those who bless you. I will put a curse on anyone who calls down a curse on you. All nations on earth will be blessed because of you."[4] So Abram left, just as the Lord had told him. Lot went with him. Abram was 75 years old when he left Haran.[5] He took his wife Sarai and his nephew Lot. They took all of the things they had gotten in Haran. They also took the workers they had gotten there. They set out for the land of Canaan. And they arrived there.[6] Abram traveled through the land. He went as far as the large tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time the people of Canaan were living in the land.[7] The Lord appeared to Abram at Shechem. He said, "I will give this land to your children after you." So Abram built an altar there to honor the Lord, who had appeared to him.[8] From there, Abram went on toward the hills east of Bethel. He set up his tent there. Bethel was to the west, and Ai was to the east. Abram built an altar there and worshiped the Lord.[9] Then Abram left and continued toward the Negev Desert.[10] At that time there wasn't enough food in the land. So Abram went down to Egypt to live there for a while.[11] As he was about to enter Egypt, he spoke to his wife Sarai. He said, "I know what a beautiful woman you are.[12] The people of Egypt will see you. They will say, 'This is his wife.' And they will kill me. But they will let you live.[13] Say you are my sister. Then I'll be treated well because of you. My life will be spared because of you."[14] Abram arrived in Egypt. The people of Egypt saw that Sarai was a very beautiful woman.[15] When Pharaoh's officials saw her, they bragged to Pharaoh about her. Sarai was taken into his palace.[16] Pharaoh treated Abram well because of her. So Abram gained more sheep and cattle. He also got more male and female donkeys. And he gained more male and female servants and some camels.[17] But the Lord sent terrible sicknesses on Pharaoh and everyone in his palace. He did it because of Abram's wife Sarai.[18] So Pharaoh sent for Abram. "What have you done to me?" he said. "Why didn't you tell me she was your wife?[19] Why did you say, 'She's my sister'? That's why I took her to be my wife. Now then, here's your wife. Take her and go!"[20] Then Pharaoh gave orders about Abram to his men. They sent him on his way. He left with his wife and everything he had.

Matteo 6:1-34
[1] "Be careful not to do 'good works' in front of others. Don't do them to be seen by others. If you do, your Father in heaven will not reward you.[2] "When you give to needy people, do not announce it by having trumpets blown. Do not be like those who only pretend to be holy. They announce what they do in the synagogues and on the streets. They want to be honored by others. What I'm about to tell you is true. They have received their complete reward.[3] "When you give to the needy, don't let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.[4] Then your giving will be done secretly. Your Father will reward you. He sees what you do secretly.[5] "When you pray, do not be like those who only pretend to be holy. They love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners. They want to be seen by others. What I'm about to tell you is true. They have received their complete reward.[6] "When you pray, go into your room. Close the door and pray to your Father, who can't be seen. He will reward you. Your Father sees what is done secretly.[7] "When you pray, do not keep talking on and on the way ungodly people do. They think they will be heard because they talk a lot.[8] Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need even before you ask him.[9] "This is how you should pray. " 'Our Father in heaven, may your name be honored.[10] May your kingdom come. May what you want to happen be done on earth as it is done in heaven.[11] Give us today our daily bread.[12] Forgive us our sins, just as we also have forgiven those who sin against us.[13] Keep us from falling into sin when we are tempted. Save us from the evil one.'[14] "Forgive people when they sin against you. If you do, your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you.[15] But if you do not forgive people their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.[16] "When you go without eating, do not look gloomy like those who only pretend to be holy. They make their faces very sad. They want to show people they are fasting. What I'm about to tell you is true. They have received their complete reward.[17] "But when you go without eating, put olive oil on your head. Wash your face.[18] Then others will not know that you are fasting. Only your Father, who can't be seen, will know it. He will reward you. Your Father sees what is done secretly.[19] "Do not put away riches for yourselves on earth. Moths and rust can destroy them. Thieves can break in and steal them.[20] Instead, put away riches for yourselves in heaven. There, moths and rust do not destroy them. There, thieves do not break in and steal them.[21] Your heart will be where your riches are.[22] "The eye is like a lamp for the body. Suppose your eyes are good. Then your whole body will be full of light.[23] But suppose your eyes are bad. Then your whole body will be full of darkness. If the light inside you is darkness, then it is very dark![24] "No one can serve two masters at the same time. He will hate one of them and love the other. Or he will be faithful to one and dislike the other. You can't serve God and Money at the same time.[25] "I tell you, do not worry. Don't worry about your life and what you will eat or drink. And don't worry about your body and what you will wear. Isn't there more to life than eating? Aren't there more important things for the body than clothes?[26] "Look at the birds of the air. They don't plant or gather crops. They don't put away crops in storerooms. But your Father who is in heaven feeds them. Aren't you worth much more than they are?[27] "Can you add even one hour to your life by worrying?[28] "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the wild flowers grow. They don't work or make clothing.[29] But here is what I tell you. Not even Solomon in all of his glory was dressed like one of those flowers.[30] "If that is how God dresses the wild grass, won't he dress you even better? After all, the grass is here only today. Tomorrow it is thrown into the fire. Your faith is so small![31] "So don't worry. Don't say, 'What will we eat?' Or, 'What will we drink?' Or, 'What will we wear?'[32] People who are ungodly run after all of those things. Your Father who is in heaven knows that you need them.[33] "But put God's kingdom first. Do what he wants you to do. Then all of those things will also be given to you.[34] "So don't worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Deuteronomio 28:1-68
[1] Make sure you obey the Lord your God completely. Be careful to follow all of his commands. I'm giving them to you today. If you do those things, the Lord will honor you more than all of the other nations on earth.[2] If you obey the Lord your God, here are the blessings that will come to you and remain with you.[3] You will be blessed in the cities. You will be blessed out in the country.[4] Your children will be blessed. Your crops will be blessed. The young animals among your livestock will be blessed. That includes your calves and lambs.[5] Your baskets and bread pans will be blessed.[6] You will be blessed no matter where you go.[7] Enemies will rise up against you. But the Lord will help you win the battle over them. They will come at you from one direction. But they'll run away from you in seven directions.[8] The Lord your God will bless your barns with plenty of grain and other food. He will bless everything you do. He'll bless you in the land he's giving you.[9] The Lord your God will make you his holy people. He will set you apart for himself. He took an oath and promised to do that. He promised to do it if you would keep his commands and live exactly as he wants you to live.[10] All of the nations on earth will see that you belong to the Lord. And they will be afraid of you.[11] The Lord will give you more than you need. You will have many children. Your livestock will have many little ones. Your crops will do very well. All of that will happen in the land he promised with an oath to your fathers to give you.[12] The Lord will open up the heavens. That's where he stores his riches. He will send rain on your land at just the right time. He'll bless everything you do. You will lend money to many nations. But you won't have to borrow from any of them.[13] The Lord your God will make you leaders, not followers. Pay attention to his commands that I'm giving you today. Be careful to follow them. Then you will always be on top. You will never be on the bottom.[14] Don't turn away from any of the commands I'm giving you today. Don't turn to the right or the left. Don't follow other gods. Don't worship them.[15] But suppose you don't obey the Lord your God. And you aren't careful to follow all of his commands and rules I'm giving you today. Then he will send curses on you. They'll catch up with you. Here are those curses.[16] You will be cursed in the cities. You will be cursed out in the country.[17] Your baskets and bread pans will be cursed.[18] Your children will be cursed. Your crops will be cursed. Your calves and lambs will be cursed.[19] You will be cursed no matter where you go.[20] The Lord will send curses on you. You won't know what's going on. In everything you do, he will be angry with you. You will be destroyed suddenly and completely. That will happen because you did an evil thing when you deserted the Lord.[21] He will send all kinds of sicknesses on you. He'll send them until he has destroyed you. He'll remove you from the land you are entering to take as your own.[22] The Lord will make you sick and very weak. He will strike you with fever and swelling. He'll send burning heat. There won't be any rain. The hot winds will completely dry up your crops. All of those things will happen until you die.[23] The sky above you will be like bronze. The ground beneath you will be like iron.[24] The Lord will turn the rain of your country into dust and powder. It will come down from the skies until you are destroyed.[25] The Lord will help your enemies win the battle over you. You will come at them from one direction. But you will run away from them in seven directions. You will look so bad that all of the kingdoms on earth will be completely shocked when they see you.[26] Birds and wild animals will eat up your dead bodies. There won't be anyone left to scare them away.[27] The Lord will send boils on you, just like the ones he sent on the Egyptians. You will have growths in your bodies and boils on your skin. You will itch all over. No one will be able to heal you.[28] The Lord will make you lose your mind. He will make you blind. You won't know what's going on.[29] Even at noon you will have to feel your way around like a blind person in the dark. You won't have success in anything you do. Day after day you will be robbed and beaten down. No one will be able to save you.[30] You and a woman will promise to get married to each other. But another man will take her and rape her. You will build a house. But you won't live in it. You will plant a vineyard. But you won't eat a single grape from it.[31] Your ox will be killed right in front of your eyes. But you won't eat any of it. Your donkey will be taken away from you by force. And you will never get it back. Your sheep will be given to your enemies. No one will be able to save them.[32] Your children will be given to another nation. Day after day you will watch for them to come back. But you will only wear out your eyes. You won't be able to help your children.[33] A nation you don't know anything about will eat what you work to produce on your land. You will be completely beaten down as long as you live.[34] The things you see will make you lose your mind.[35] The Lord will send painful boils on your knees and legs. No one will be able to heal them. They will cover you from head to toe.[36] The Lord will drive you out of the land. And he will drive out the king you place over you. All of you will go to a nation you and your people long ago didn't know anything about. There you will worship other gods. They will be made out of wood and stone.[37] You will look very bad to all of the nations where the Lord sends you. They will be completely shocked when they see you. They will laugh at you and make fun of you.[38] You will plant many seeds in your field. But you will gather very little food. Locusts will eat it up.[39] You will plant vineyards and take care of them. But you won't drink the wine. You won't gather the grapes. Worms will eat them up.[40] You will have olive trees through your whole country. But you won't use the oil. The olives will drop off the trees.[41] You will have children. But you won't be able to keep them. They'll be taken away as prisoners.[42] Large numbers of locusts will eat up the leaves on all of your trees. They will also eat up the crops on your land.[43] Outsiders who live among you will become your leaders. They will rise higher and higher. But you will sink lower and lower.[44] They will lend money to you. But you won't be able to lend money to them. They will be the leaders. But you will be the followers.[45] The Lord your God will send all of those curses on you. They will follow you everywhere. They'll catch up with you. You will be under the Lord's curse until you are destroyed. That's because you didn't obey him. You didn't keep the commands and rules he gave you.[46] Those curses will remain as miraculous signs and wonders against you and your children after you forever.[47] You didn't serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness when times were good.[48] So he will send enemies against you. You will have to serve them. You will be hungry and thirsty. You will be naked and poor. The Lord will put the iron chains of slavery around your necks until he has destroyed you.[49] The Lord will bring a nation against you from far away. It will come from the ends of the earth. It will dive down on you like an eagle. You won't understand that nation's language.[50] Its people will look mean. They won't have any respect for old people. They won't show any kindness to young people.[51] They will eat up the young animals among your livestock. They'll eat up the crops on your land. They'll destroy you. They won't leave you any grain, olive oil or fresh wine. They won't leave you any calves or lambs. They'll destroy you.[52] They'll surround all of the cities through your whole land. They'll get ready to attack them. They'll do those things until the high, strong walls you trust in fall down. That's what will happen to the cities in the land the Lord your God is giving you.[53] Your enemies will surround you and get ready to attack you. They will make you suffer greatly. So you will eat your own children. You will eat the dead bodies of the sons and daughters the Lord your God has given you.[54] There may be a gentle and caring man among you. But he will treat his own brother badly. He'll be just as mean to the wife he loves and to any of his children who are still alive.[55] He won't give to a single one of them any part of the dead bodies of his children that he's eating. It will be all he has left to eat. That's how much your enemies will make you suffer when they surround all of your cities to attack them.[56] There may be a gentle and caring woman among you. She wouldn't even touch the ground with her feet without first putting her sandals on. But she will not share anything with the husband she loves. She won't share with her own children either.[57] She will eat what comes out of her body after she has a baby. Then she'll even eat her baby. She won't share it with anyone in her family. She'll plan to eat it in secret. There won't be anything else for her to eat because the city she lives in will be surrounded. That's an example of how much your enemies will make you suffer when they are getting ready to attack your cities.[58] Be careful to follow all of the words of this law. They are written in this scroll. Have respect for the glorious and wonderful name of the Lord your God. If you don't,[59] he will send terrible plagues on you and your children after you. He'll send horrible and lasting troubles. He'll make you very sick for a long time.[60] He'll bring on you all of the sicknesses you were afraid of getting when you were in Egypt. You won't be able to get rid of them.[61] The Lord will also bring on you all of the other kinds of sickness and trouble I haven't written down in this Scroll of the Law. You will be destroyed.[62] At one time you were as many as the stars in the sky. But there will only be a few of you left. That's because you didn't obey the Lord your God.[63] It pleased the Lord to give you success and to increase your numbers. But it will please him just as much to wipe you out and destroy you. You will be removed from the land you are entering to take as your own.[64] Then the Lord will scatter you among all of the nations. He'll spread you around from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship statues of gods that are made out of wood and stone. You and your people long ago hadn't known anything about those gods.[65] Among those nations you won't find any peace. There won't be any place where you can settle down and rest your feet. There the Lord will give you minds that are filled with worry. He'll give you eyes that are worn out from sobbing. Your hearts won't have any hope.[66] Your lives will always be in danger. You will be filled with fear night and day. You will never be sure you are safe.[67] In the morning you will say, "We wish it were evening!" In the evening you will say, "We wish it were morning!" Your hearts will be filled with fear. The things you see will terrify you.[68] The Lord will send you back to Egypt in ships. He'll send you on a journey I said you should never have to make again. You will offer to sell yourselves to your enemies as slaves in Egypt. But no one will buy you.
