Luke 12:16-21

A.16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

B.18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

C.19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

C’.20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

B. 21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself,

A. and is not rich toward God.
