“How often they provoked Him in the wilderness, And grieved Him in the desert! Yes, again and again they tempted God, And limited the Holy One of Israel: The day when He redeemed them from the enemy,” – Psa. 78: 40-21

They did not remember His power.

Do not provoke, grieve, tempt, or limit the Redeemer.

“The LORD says to my Lord: ‘Sit at My right hand Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.’” – Psa. 110:1

The most quoted OT verse in the NT.

Many a time He turned His anger away

“But He, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, And did not destroy them.
Yes, many a time He turned His anger away,
And did not stir up all His wrath; For He remembered that they were but flesh, A breath that passes away and does not come again.” – Psa. 78:38-39

God is patient.

Wealth gained hastily

Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.” – Prov. 13:11

Literally, wealth by a breath; i.e.wealth obtained without work or by illegitimate and dishonest means, is not blessed by God.

There is a Greek maxim, Cito nata, cito pereunt: “Quickly won, quickly gone.”

The opposite is equally true.

“The LORD shall reign forever— Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!” – Psa. 146:10

The LORD shall reign forever.

Where no oxen are, the trough is clean; But much increase comes by the strength of an ox.” – Prov. 14:4
