“The prince that lacketh understanding is a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness,” that hath not his eyes bleared and blinded with the dust of earthly mindedness,”shall prolong his days,” #Pr 28:16.
“His watchmen are blind”: and why? “they are greedy dogs, which can never have enough, and they are shepherds which cannot understand; they all look to their own way, every one for his gain from his quarter,” #Isa 56:10,11. Of this sort were those covetous Pharisees, that devoured widows’ houses;
therefore blind, because covetous.
