“But God said vnto him, Thou foole, this night thy soule shal be required of thee: then whose shal those things be which thou hast prouided?”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
12:20 Thou fool - To think of satisfying thy soul with earthly goods! To depend on living many years! Yea, one day! They - The messengers of death, commissioned by God, require thy soul of thee!
Lu 12:20 [Thou] fool. The still, small voice may have said this, as mortal disease attacked him. Men said that he was sagacious, wise; but God said, "Thou fool". This night. Instead of having many years, "this night" he shall die, unprepared, and all his goods on which he set his heart be delivered over to others.
