    the truth expressed in this translation echoes the wisdom of religious traditions. as it happened, i read again this morning a literal translation of psalm 33, which says near the end, " Look, the Lord's eye is on those who fear Him, on those who yearn for His kindness to save their lives from death and in famine to keep them alive." a big, if not the main reason, for the greedy accumulation of wealth is to seek security—which doesn't exist apart from God. -gk (Report)Reply

    Thanks for the appreciation and understanding. Nowadays everyone is greedy that they want more wealth in a quick manner, a doctor, nursing homes, government office workers, officers, politicians and rulers by exploiting others in cheating and obtaining bribes. Even if they are caught by police and vigilance, they shatter their respect and genetic pride, go with the police smiling!
