Give me just enough to satisfy my needs.
For if I grow too rich, I may deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?”
And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name.
Anger is cruel, and wrath is like a flood,
but jealousy is even more dangerous.
For the despondent, every day brings trouble;
for the happy heart, life is a continual feast.
May you live to enjoy your grandchildren.
I have chosen to be faithful.
And so I walk in the Lord’s presence
as I live here on earth.
You allow them to produce food from the earth —
wine to make them glad, olive oil to sooth their skin,
and bread to give them strength.
