An angel displays symbols of vanity that are associated with the deadly sin of pride. Proverbs 6:16-19 outlines the seven deadly sins as, "A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.". Rather than seeking material wealth, Proverbs promotes wisdom as some of the greatest wealth attainable. 8:10-11 says, "Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it." Proverbs 20:15 says, "There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel." (See also Ecclesiates 1:2 and 12:8) See Proverbs 6:16–19, Proverbs 8:10–11, Proverbs 20:15, Ecclesiastes 1:2, Ecclesiastes 12:8. Image
