“Stand, you’ll prosper soon.”

True prosperity comes from the Lord.
A Song of Ascents, of Solomon:

“Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.”

“It is vain for you to rise up early,
To retire late,
To eat the bread of painful labors;
For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.”
(Psalm 127)

The Bible also tells us:
“Do not weary yourself to gain wealth, Cease from your consideration of it. When you set your eyes on it, it is gone. For wealth certainly makes itself wings like an eagle that flies toward the heavens.”

and read this, a piece about the life of Uzziah:

“..He did right in the sight of the Lord according to all that his father Amaziah had done. He continued to seek God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding through the vision of God; and as long as he sought the Lord, God prospered him.”

I do not envy your ‘succes’, God will give me my own.
You think this book I trust is vain? Give yourself a break.
