 198   The  RICH  FOOL 
   Matt       Mark    Luke 12
     16  And he told them a parable,
      "The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully;


and he thought to himself,


'What shall I do,
      for I have nowhere to store my crops?'


And he said,
      'I will do this:


I will pull down my barns,
      and build larger ones;
      and there I will store all my grain and my goods.


And I will say to my soul, 
      'Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years;
      take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.'


But God said to him, 'Fool!
      this night your soul is required of you;


and the things you have prepared
      whose will they be?'


So is he who lays up treasure for nimself,
      and is not rich toward God."
