Hebrews 13:5

Let your conduct be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
Read Chapter 13

Clement Of Alexandria

AD 215
For God's greatest gift is self-restraint. For He Himself has said, "I will neyer leave thee, nor forsake thee"

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
I will not leave thee, neither will I forsake thee. It is an exhortation to covetous persons not to be too solicitous, but to trust in Providence. (Witham)

John Chrysostom

AD 407
Let your conversation be without covetousness, he says. He did not say, Possess nothing, but, Let your conversation be without covetousness: that is, let it show forth the philosophical character of your mind. [And it will show it, if we do not seek superfluities, if we keep only to what is necessary.] For he says above also, And ye took joyfully the spoiling of your goods. Hebrews 10:34 He gives these exhortations, that they might not be covetous.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
