Read the verse again. I would almost put money on a belief that you misread it. I would almost bet that if someone asked you what it said you would understand it to be an attack on the greedy capitalists who are bleeding the poor to put money in their pockets. That is what our culture sees because they are not in tune with truth.
The problem is not profits, big profits or windfall profits. The problem is using violence and threats to gain wealth. The word “greedy” (profits NASB) (1214) is used one other place in Proverbs which makes this clear.
(Proverbs 1:19 KJV) So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.So? Don’t be afraid to make an honest profit. Don’t be afraid to do well. Do refuse to use coercion and violence.
