Psalm 39:6
"Surely every man walks about as a phantom; Surely they make an uproar for nothing; He amasses [riches] and does not know who will gather them.
Psalm 49:16-20
16
Do not be afraid when a man becomes rich, When the glory of his house is increased;
17
For when he dies he will carry nothing away; His glory will not descend after him.
18
Though while he lives he congratulates himself-- And though [men] praise you when you do well for yourself--
19
He shall go to the generation of his fathers; They will never see the light.
20
Man in [his] pomp, yet without understanding, Is like the beasts that perish.
Ecclesiastes 2:3-26
3
I explored with my mind [how] to stimulate my body with wine while my mind was guiding [me] wisely, and how to take hold of folly, until I could see what good there is for the sons of men to do under heaven the few years of their lives.
4
I enlarged my works: I built houses for myself, I planted vineyards for myself;
5
I made gardens and parks for myself and I planted in them all kinds of fruit trees;
6
I made ponds of water for myself from which to irrigate a forest of growing trees.
7
I bought male and female slaves and I had homeborn slaves. Also I possessed flocks and herds larger than all who preceded me in Jerusalem.
8
Also, I collected for myself silver and gold and the treasure of kings and provinces. I provided for myself male and female singers and the pleasures of men-- many concubines.
9
Then I became great and increased more than all who preceded me in Jerusalem. My wisdom also stood by me.
10
All that my eyes desired I did not refuse them. I did not withhold my heart from any pleasure, for my heart was pleased because of all my labor and this was my reward for all my labor.
11
Thus I considered all my activities which my hands had done and the labor which I had exerted, and behold all was vanity and striving after wind and there was no profit under the sun.
12
So I turned to consider wisdom, madness and folly; for what [will] the man [do] who will come after the king [except] what has already been done?
13
And I saw that wisdom excels folly as light excels darkness.
14
The wise man's eyes are in his head, but the fool walks in darkness. And yet I know that one fate befalls them both.
15
Then I said to myself, "As is the fate of the fool, it will also befall me. Why then have I been extremely wise?" So I said to myself, "This too is vanity."
16
For there is no lasting remembrance of the wise man [as] with the fool, inasmuch as [in] the coming days all will be forgotten. And how the wise man and the fool alike die!
17
So I hated life, for the work which had been done under the sun was grievous to me; because everything is futility and striving after wind.
18
Thus I hated all the fruit of my labor for which I had labored under the sun, for I must leave it to the man who will come after me.
19
And who knows whether he will be a wise man or a fool? Yet he will have control over all the fruit of my labor for which I have labored by acting wisely under the sun. This too is vanity.
20
Therefore I completely despaired of all the fruit of my labor for which I had labored under the sun.
21
When there is a man who has labored with wisdom, knowledge and skill, then he gives his legacy to one who has not labored with them. This too is vanity and a great evil.
22
For what does a man get in all his labor and in his striving with which he labors under the sun?
23
Because all his days his task is painful and grievous; even at night his mind does not rest. This too is vanity.
24
There is nothing better for a man [than] to eat and drink and tell himself that his labor is good. This also I have seen that it is from the hand of God.
25
For who can eat and who can have enjoyment without Him?
26
For to a person who is good in His sight He has given wisdom and knowledge and joy, while to the sinner He has given the task of gathering and collecting so that he may give to one who is good in God's sight. This too is vanity and striving after wind.
Isaiah 55:2
"Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And delight yourself in abundance.
Luke 12:19
'And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years [to come]; take your ease, eat, drink [and] be merry."'
Luke 16:19
"Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day.
James 4:13
Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit."
James 5:1-5
1
Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you.
2
Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten.
3
Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure!
4
Behold, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, [and] which has been withheld by you, cries out [against you]; and the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.
5
You have lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.
