Proverbs 18:11

The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.
– Proverbs 18:11

This proverb is linked to the previous one with similar images, though wealth is contrasted with the name of the Lord as safety. Wealth has benefits and offers protections of a sort on earth, but those are limited. Wealth in itself is neither good nor bad, right nor wrong. Trusting in riches is to be ultimately confounded (Proverbs 11:4).
