WORLD debt clock


The LORD JESUS declared:

John 16:33

King James Version

33 These things I have spoken unto you, 

that in me ye might have peace. 

In the world ye shall have tribulation: 

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.

What an interesting discovery!

Thanks to Michael Cowan's YT report:

THE FED & Lenders Are Going bankrupt! Shocking New Report

He showed a cool webpage, "U.S. Debt Clock".

In the process, I checked "World Debt Clocks".

You can also check debt clocks per U.S. state.

As Cowan says, it's like watching a "slow motion train wreck".

There's also a "Debt Clock Time Machine" showing the years 1980, 1990, 2000, 2003, 2008, 2012, 2016, 2020, 2022, and "Budget Showdown 2026".

Banks and currencies may be predictably unpredictable, but born agains take heart from Scripture:

Psalm 34:17-22

King James Version

17 The righteous cry, 

and the Lord heareth, 

and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; 

and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: 

but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

20 He keepeth all his bones: 

not one of them is broken.

21 Evil shall slay the wicked: 

and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.

22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: 

and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

CARBON credit scheme

Galatians 5:1

King James Version

5 Stand fast therefore in the liberty 

wherewith Christ hath made us free, 

and be not entangled again 

with the yoke of bondage.

Carbon credits?

Carbon footprint?

Social credit scores?

How is it changing our world?

What's the real agenda?

A diligent researcher was stumped himself.

He admits he didn't know where to start.

But start, he did, through this video:

A New Social Credit Score!? You Won't Believe What's Coming

Taking note of the terms, and organizations, he mentioned, here's what I found:

Kyoto protocol

Our Ecological Footprint: Reducing Human Impact on the Earth (New Catalyst Bioregional Series)

Carbon footprint


Millennium Development Goals

Sustainable Development Goals

UN Agenda 2030

World Economic Forum

The Global Population Will Soon Reach 8 Billion—Then What?

Carbon credit

Paris Agreement

What ‘regulatory credits’ are — and why they’re so important to Tesla

Environmental Implications of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC)

Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC)

Carbon Credit (Science Direct overview)

The IMF is Coming For CRYPTO!! Here's Why

EXPOSED: The Fed & big banks to test SOCIAL CREDIT SCORES?

As I reviewed the above material, more were added:

Carbon dioxide

Carbon offset

Carbon market

Carbon tax

Carbon price

Carbon budget

Compliance Carbon Credit Markets

Carbon reduction schemes

Emissions trading

Emissions target

Commodity market

Social cost of carbon

Greenhouse gas

Greenhouse gas emissions

Zero-emissions vehicle

Pigovian tax

environmental, social and governance (ESG)

Makes your head spin?

It doesn't mine, for I only test the world's schemes versus what the Bible says.

If you are born again, a child of GOD, worshiping GOD alone, then you have a clear stand.

May the proponents of this scheme, and all other future schemes adhere to the command of JESUS:

John 13:34-35

King James Version

34 A new commandment I give unto you, 

That ye love one another; 

as I have loved you, 

that ye also love one another.

35 By this shall all men know 

that ye are my disciples, 

if ye have love one to another.

Lastly, here's what the Bible says:

Proverbs 19:21

King James Version

21 There are many devices in a man's heart; 

nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, 

that shall stand.

1 Corinthians 10:31

King James Version

31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, 

or whatsoever ye do, 

do all to the glory of God.

INTENTIONAL inflation?


James 4:13-14

King James Version

13 Go to now, ye that say, 

To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, 

and continue there a year, 

and buy and sell, and get gain:

14 Whereas ye know not 

what shall be on the morrow. 

For what is your life? 

It is even a vapour, 

that appeareth for a little time, 

and then vanisheth away.

What is inflation?

Can it be created?

How is it controlled?

In the process of taking notes that I may write "On dishonest gain", I came across phrases like "intentional inflation", and "helicopter money".

Wow, so many terms in the world of finance.

Ought we know about these two phrases?

I believe we must.

But first, let the experts define "inflation":

"Inflation is caused by printing more money. The government's monetary policies are responsible for this. Keynesian spending policies and ideology and the abolishment of the gold standard have permitted the government to depreciate our currency."

   -- Dr. Edward W. Younkins


Through common sense, we can determine "intentional inflation" as inflation, by deliberate intent, or design.

'Helicopter money" is summarized as":

Helicopter money pertains to an unconventional monetary policy tool that involves printing large sums of money and distributing it to the public to spur economic growth.

American economist and statistician Milton Friedman invented the term “helicopter money.” 

Key criticisms of helicopter money include (1) its irreversibility, (2) the potential for hyperinflation, and (3) the devaluation of the domestic currency.

   -- Corporate Finance Institute Team (CFI Team)

   Helicopter Money


Both terms suggest "printing large sums of money".

I'm no economist.

All I know is when economists hear about that, they get concerned.

They say it will lead to inflation.

And then, a recession.

We could all use a recess from all these complicated monetary activities.

Another interesting definition of inflation can be found here:

"Inflation is a form of sovereign default. Paying off bonds with currency that is worth half as much as it used to be is like defaulting on half of the debt. And sovereign default happens not in boom times but when economies and governments are in trouble."

   - John H. Cochrane

   "Inflation and Debt" (National Affairs)

Let's have a look at what experts say:

Rapid inflation — deliberate policy or miscalculation?

Ezekiel 22:27

King James Version

27 Her princes in the midst thereof 

are like wolves ravening the prey, 

to shed blood, 

and to destroy souls, 

to get dishonest gain.

Business, and institutions, are notorious for "dishonest gain".

Doesn't matter, whether they're public, or private entities.

Same objective: PROFIT.

It's always been about profit.

We all know in our hearts, what excessive gain is.

It causes excessive hardship in others.

I don't think I'd be able to sleep good nights if I were to profit from another person's poverty, or get him to that point, just so my pockets would be fat, and full.

Or to keep others in ignorance, that I may profit.

As born again, I don't have the heart to do so.

I live by Scripture, and that's what I'll share with you.

We must know the LAWS of GOD, that we may live righteously in His eyes.

For starters, the LORD abhors a false balance.

Proverbs 11:1

King James Version

11 A false balance is abomination to the Lord: 

but a just weight is his delight.

Let us all be warned, and do right by GOD, and our brothers and sisters.

Here are more verses that speak about dishonest gain:

Exodus 18:21

King James Version

21 Moreover thou shalt provide 

out of all the people able men, 

such as fear God, 

men of truth, 

hating covetousness; 

and place such over them, 

to be rulers of thousands, 

and rulers of hundreds, 

rulers of fifties, 

and rulers of tens:

Leviticus 19:15

King James Version

15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: 

thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, 

nor honor the person of the mighty: 

but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.

1 Samuel 8:1-3

King James Version

8 And it came to pass, 

when Samuel was old, 

that he made his sons judges over Israel.

2 Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; 

and the name of his second, Abiah: 

they were judges in Beersheba.

3 And his sons walked not in his ways, 

but turned aside after lucre, 

and took bribes, 

and perverted judgment.

Proverbs 10:2

King James Version

2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: 

but righteousness delivereth from death.

Proverbs 23:4-5

King James Version

4 Labour not to be rich: 

cease from thine own wisdom.

5 Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? 

for riches certainly make themselves wings; 

they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

Proverbs 28:20

King James Version

20 A faithful man shall abound with blessings: 

but he that maketh haste to be rich 

shall not be innocent.

Ecclesiastes 3:17-20

King James Version

17 I said in mine heart, 

God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: 

for there is a time there for every purpose 

and for every work.

18 I said in mine heart 

concerning the estate of the sons of men, 

that God might manifest them, 

and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

19 For that which befalleth the sons of men 

befalleth beasts; 

even one thing befalleth them: 

as the one dieth, so dieth the other; 

yea, they have all one breath; 

so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: 

for all is vanity.

20 All go unto one place; 

all are of the dust, 

and all turn to dust again.

Ezekiel 22:29-31

King James Version

29 The people of the land have used oppression, 

and exercised robbery, 

and have vexed the poor and needy: 

yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully.

30 And I sought for a man among them, 

that should make up the hedge, 

and stand in the gap before me for the land, 

that I should not destroy it: 

but I found none.

31 Therefore have I poured out 

mine indignation upon them; 

I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: 

their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, 

saith the Lord God.

Ephesians 4:17-19

King James Version

17 This I say therefore, 

and testify in the Lord, 

that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, 

in the vanity of their mind,

18 Having the understanding darkened, 

being alienated from the life of God 

through the ignorance that is in them, 

because of the blindness of their heart:

19 Who being past feeling 

have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, 

to work all uncleanness with greediness.

Ephesians 4:22-25

King James Version

22 That ye put off concerning 

the former conversation the old man, 

which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

24 And that ye put on the new man, 

which after God is created in righteousness 

and true holiness.

25 Wherefore putting away lying, 

speak every man truth with his neighbour: 

for we are members one of another.

Ephesians 4:27

King James Version

27 Neither give place to the devil.

Ephesians 4:28

King James Version

28 Let him that stole steal no more: 

but rather let him labour, 

working with his hands the thing which is good, 

that he may have to give to him that needeth.

Ephesians 4:31

King James Version

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, 

and clamour, and evil speaking, 

be put away from you, 

with all malice:

Ephesians 4:32

King James Version

32 And be ye kind one to another, 


forgiving one another, 

even as God for Christ's sake 

hath forgiven you.

1 Timothy 6:4-5

King James Version

4 He is proud, 

knowing nothing, 

but doting about questions and strifes of words, 

whereof cometh envy, strife, 

railings, evil surmisings,

5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, 

and destitute of the truth, 

supposing that gain is godliness: 

from such withdraw thyself.

1 Timothy 6:6-11

King James Version

6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.

7 For we brought nothing into this world, 

and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

8 And having food and raiment 

let us be therewith content.

9 But they that will be rich fall 

into temptation and a snare, 

and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, 

which drown men in destruction and perdition.

10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: 

which while some coveted after, 

they have erred from the faith, 

and pierced themselves through 

with many sorrows.

11 But thou, 

O man of God, 

flee these things; 

and follow after righteousness, 

godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

Titus 1:10-11

King James Version

10 For there are many unruly and vain 

talkers and deceivers, 

specially they of the circumcision:

11 Whose mouths must be stopped, 

who subvert whole houses, 

teaching things which they ought not, 

for filthy lucre's sake.

1 Peter 5:2-3

King James Version

2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, 

taking the oversight thereof, 

not by constraint, but willingly; 

not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;

3 Neither as being lords over God's heritage, 

but being examples to the flock.

Scripture still has much to say about greed, robbery, covetousness, and such.

That would be a whole blog in itself.

But you get the idea.

For now, let this post drive home the point.

JESUS made us choose:

Matthew 6:24

King James Version

24 No man can serve two masters: 

for either he will hate the one, 

and love the other; 

or else he will hold to the one, 

and despise the other. 

Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

We are to love our brothers, and sisters.

As JESUS commanded us:

John 13:34-35

King James Version

34 A new commandment I give unto you, 

That ye love one another; as I have loved you, 

that ye also love one another.

35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, 

if ye have love one to another.

"Yeah, but I'm not a disciple, and don't intend to be," you'd inform me.

Well, it's time you did.

For it's all preparation now.

Of getting our hearts right, before the LORD.

JESUS alerted my heart to the imminence of the RAPTURE.

I write, to warn.

Matthew 24:39-42

King James Version

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

42 Watch therefore:

for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Time to have a new heart.

Make that 180-degree turn now.

TURN back to GOD.

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

1 Corinthians 6:11

King James Version

11 And such were some of you: 

but ye are washed, 

but ye are sanctified, 

but ye are justified 

in the name of the Lord Jesus, 

and by the Spirit of our God.

The next post will be interesting, too.

Something about "intentional inflation".

Man's predisposition for creating unnecessary hardship in those "not in the know", is legendary.

But this blog will reveal what SPIRIT, and SCRIPTURE, want revealed.

GOD's law on lending among JEWS


Nehemiah 5:4

King James Version

4 There were also that said, 

We have borrowed money for the king's tribute, 

and that upon our lands and vineyards.

How are Jews to treat each other?

What did GOD require of them, with regards to money?

Here are His laws, from the Old Testament:

Exodus 22:25-27

King James Version

25 If thou lend money to any of my people 

that is poor by thee, 

thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, 

neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.

26 If thou at all take thy neighbour's raiment to pledge, 

thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:

27 For that is his covering only, 

it is his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? 

and it shall come to pass, 

when he crieth unto me, 

that I will hear; 

for I am gracious.

Leviticus 25:35-38

King James Version

35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, 

and fallen in decay with thee; 

then thou shalt relieve him: 

yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; 

that he may live with thee.

36 Take thou no usury of him, 

or increase: 

but fear thy God; 

that thy brother may live with thee.

37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, 

nor lend him thy victuals for increase.

38 I am the Lord your God, 

which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, 

to give you the land of Canaan, 

and to be your God.

Deuteronomy 8:18

King James Version

18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: 

for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, 

that he may establish his covenant 

which he sware unto thy fathers, 

as it is this day.

Deuteronomy 15:7-11

King James Version

7 If there be among you a poor man 

of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates 

in thy land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, 

thou shalt not harden thine heart, 

nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother:

8 But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, 

and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, 

in that which he wanteth.

9 Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, 


The seventh year, 

the year of release, 

is at hand; 

and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, 

and thou givest him nought; 

and he cry unto the Lord against thee, 

and it be sin unto thee.

10 Thou shalt surely give him, 

and thine heart shall not be grieved 

when thou givest unto him: 

because that for this thing the Lord thy God 

shall bless thee in all thy works, 

and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto.

11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: 

therefore I command thee, 


Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, 

to thy poor, and to thy needy, 

in thy land.

Deuteronomy 23:19-20

King James Version

19 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; 

usury of money, 

usury of victuals, 

usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:

20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; 

but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: 

that the Lord thy God may bless thee 

in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land 

whither thou goest to possess it.

Deuteronomy 28:12-13

King James Version

12 The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, 

the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, 

and to bless all the work of thine hand: 

and thou shalt lend unto many nations, 

and thou shalt not borrow.

13 And the Lord shall make thee the head, 

and not the tail; 

and thou shalt be above only, 

and thou shalt not be beneath; 

if that thou hearken 

unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, 

which I command thee this day, 

to observe and to do them:

Ezekiel 18:7-9

King James Version

7 And hath not oppressed any, 

but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, 

hath spoiled none by violence, 

hath given his bread to the hungry, 

and hath covered the naked with a garment;

8 He that hath not given forth upon usury, 

neither hath taken any increase, 

that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, 

hath executed true judgment between man and man,

9 Hath walked in my statutes, 

and hath kept my judgments, 

to deal truly; 

he is just, 

he shall surely live, 

saith the Lord God.

A WHOLE chapter is also devoted to lending among Jews:

What the BIBLE says about LENDING


Proverbs 22:7

King James Version

7 The rich ruleth over the poor, 

and the borrower is servant to the lender.

Ever borrowed money?

Ever loaned money?

What were your expectations?

Did you make people sign something?

Did you give generously, and freely?

Or did you trust they'd pay?

Here's what JESUS says:

Matthew 5:42

King James Version

42 Give to him that asketh thee, 

and from him that would borrow of thee 

turn not thou away.

Matthew 6:19

King James Version

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, 

where moth and rust doth corrupt, 

and where thieves break through and steal:

Matthew 6:24

King James Version

24 No man can serve two masters:

 for either he will hate the one, 

and love the other; 

or else he will hold to the one, 

and despise the other. 

Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Matthew 19:21

King James Version

21 Jesus said unto him, 

If thou wilt be perfect, 

go and sell that thou hast, 

and give to the poor, 

and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: 

and come and follow me.

Matthew 19:23-24

King James Version

23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, 

Verily I say unto you, 

That a rich man 

shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

24 And again I say unto you, 

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, 

than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Matthew 25:40

King James Version

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Inasmuch as ye have done it 

unto one of the least of these my brethren, 

ye have done it unto me.

Mark 4:18-19

King James Version

18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; 

such as hear the word,

19 And the cares of this world, 

and the deceitfulness of riches, 

and the lusts of other things entering in, 

choke the word, 

and it becometh unfruitful.

Mark 8:36

King James Version

36 For what shall it profit a man, 

if he shall gain the whole world, 

and lose his own soul?

Luke 6:30

King James Version

30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; 

and of him that taketh away thy goods 

ask them not again.

Luke 6:31-32

King James Version

31 And as ye would that men should do to you, 

do ye also to them likewise.

32 For if ye love them which love you, 

what thank have ye? 

for sinners also love those that love them.

Luke 6:33

King James Version

33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, 

what thank have ye? 

for sinners also do even the same.

Luke 6:34

King James Version

34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, 

what thank have ye? 

for sinners also lend to sinners, 

to receive as much again.

Luke 6:35

King James Version

35 But love ye your enemies, 

and do good,

and lend, 

hoping for nothing again; 

and your reward shall be great, 

and ye shall be the children of the Highest: 

for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

Luke 6:38

King James Version

38 Give, 

and it shall be given unto you; 

good measure, pressed down,

 and shaken together, and running over, 

shall men give into your bosom. 

For with the same measure that ye mete withal 

it shall be measured to you again.

Luke 11:5-8

King James Version

5 And he said unto them, 

Which of you shall have a friend, 

and shall go unto him at midnight, 

and say unto him, 

Friend, lend me three loaves;

6 For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, 

and I have nothing to set before him?

7 And he from within shall answer and say, 

Trouble me not: 

the door is now shut, 

and my children are with me in bed; 

I cannot rise and give thee.

8 I say unto you, 

Though he will not rise and give him, 

because he is his friend, 

yet because of his importunity he will rise 

and give him as many as he needeth.

Luke 11:10

King James Version

10 For every one that asketh receiveth; 

and he that seeketh findeth; 

and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Luke 11:11-13

King James Version

11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, 

will he give him a stone? 

or if he ask a fish, 

will he for a fish give him a serpent?

12 Or if he shall ask an egg, 

will he offer him a scorpion?

13 If ye then, being evil, 

know how to give good gifts unto your children: 

how much more shall your heavenly Father 

give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Luke 12:33-34

King James Version

33 Sell that ye have, 

and give alms; 

provide yourselves bags which wax not old, 

a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, 

where no thief approacheth, 

neither moth corrupteth.

34 For where your treasure is, 

there will your heart be also.

Luke 12:15

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Take heed, 

and beware of covetousness: 

for a man's life consisteth 

not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

Here's what the Bible says about lending to those in need:

Deuteronomy 15:11

King James Version

11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: 

therefore I command thee, 


Thou shalt open thine hand wide 

unto thy brother, 

to thy poor, 

and to thy needy, 

in thy land.

1 Samuel 2:7-8

King James Version

7 The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich: 

he bringeth low, and lifteth up.

8 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, 

and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, 

to set them among princes, 

and to make them inherit the throne of glory: 

for the pillars of the earth are the Lord's, 

and he hath set the world upon them.

Psalm 15:5

King James Version

5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, 

nor taketh reward against the innocent.

He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

Psalm 37:16-17

King James Version

16 A little that a righteous man hath

and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, 

which drown men in destruction and perdition.

which while some coveted after, 

they have erred from the faith,

 O man of God, 

flee these things; 

and follow after righteousness, godliness, 

faith, love, patience, meekness.

18 That they do good, 

that they be rich in good works, 

ready to distribute, 

willing to communicate;

19 Laying up in store for themselves 

a good foundation against the time to come, 

that they may lay hold on eternal life.

before God and the Father is this,

King James Version

5 Go to now, 

ye rich men, 

weep and howl for your miseries 

that shall come upon you.

2 Your riches are corrupted, 

and your garments are motheaten.

3 Your gold and silver is cankered; 

and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, 

and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. 

Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

4 Behold, 

the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, 

which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: 

and the cries of them which have reaped 

are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.

5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, 

and been wanton; 

ye have nourished your hearts, 

as in a day of slaughter.

6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; 

and he doth not resist you.

1 John 2:15-17

King James Version

15 Love not the world, 

neither the things that are in the world. 

If any man love the world, 

the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, 

the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, 

and the pride of life, 

is not of the Father, 

but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, 

and the lust thereof: 

but he that doeth the will of God 

abideth for ever.

Revelation 3:16-19

King James Version

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, 

and neither cold nor hot, 

I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, 

I am rich, 

and increased with goods, 

and have need of nothing; 

and knowest not that thou art wretched, 

and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, 

that thou mayest be rich; 

and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, 

and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; 

and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, 

that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, 

I rebuke and chasten: 

be zealous therefore, 

and repent.

The next post is on GOD's laws on lending among Jews.
