Proverbs 23:4-12  NAS

Do not weary yourself to gain wealth, cease from your consideration of it.  When you set your eyes on it, it is gone.  For wealth certainly makes itself wings like an eagle that flies toward the heavens.   Do not eat the bread of a selfish man, or desire his delicacies; for as he thinks within himself, so he is.  He says to you, "Eat and drink!"  But his heart is not with you.  You will vomit up the morsel you have eaten, and waste your compliments.  Do not speak in the hearing of a fool, for he will despise the wisdom of your words.  Do not move the ancient boundary or go into the fields of the fatherless, for their Redeemer is strong; He will plead their case against you.  Apply your heart to discipline and your ears to words of knowledge.
