‘wages’….. mentioned in the Holy Bible (KJV)

WagesYe have sown much, and bring in little;
ye eat, but ye have not enough;
ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink;
ye clothe you, but there is none warm;
and he that earneth wages
earneth wages to put it
into a bag with holes. – Haggai 1:6

I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “wages ”.

Because thou art my brother,
shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought?
tell me, what shall thy wages be?

and I will give it.

Genesis 31:7 And your father hath deceived me,
and changed my wages ten times;
but God suffered him not to hurt me.

Genesis 31:8 If he said thus, The speckled shall be thy wages;
then all the cattle bare speckled:
and if he said thus, The ringstraked shall be thy hire;
then bare all the cattle ringstraked.

Genesis 31:41 Thus have I been twenty years in thy house;
I served thee fourteen years for thy two daughters,
and six years for thy cattle:
and thou hast changed my wages ten times.

Take this child away,
and nurse it for me,
and I will give thee thy wages.

neither rob him:
the wages of him that is hired
shall not abide with thee
all night until the morning.

and his chambers by wrong;
that useth his neighbour’s service without wages,
and giveth him not for his work;

Ezekiel 29:18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon
caused his army to serve a great service against Tyrus:
every head was made bald,
and every shoulder was peeled:
yet had he no wages, nor his army,
for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against it:

Ezekiel 29:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold,
I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon;
and he shall take her multitude,
and take her spoil, and take her prey;
and it shall be the wages for his army.

Haggai 1:6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little;
ye eat, but ye have not enough;
ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink;
ye clothe you, but there is none warm;
and he that earneth wages
earneth wages to put it
into a bag with holes.

Malachi 3:5 And I will come near to you to judgment;
and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers,
and against the adulterers,
and against false swearers,
and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages,
the widow, and the fatherless,
and that turn aside the stranger from his right,
and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.

Luke 3:14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying,
And what shall we do?
And he said unto them,
Do violence to no man,
neither accuse any falsely;
and be content with your wages.

John 4:36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages,
and gathereth fruit unto life eternal:
that both he that soweth and he that reapeth
may rejoice together.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

2 Corinthians 11:8 I robbed other churches,
taking wages of them,
to do you service.

9. And when I was present with you, and wanted,
I was chargeable to no man:
for that which was lacking to me the brethren
which came from Macedonia supplied:
and in all  things I have kept myself
from being burdensome unto you,
and  so will I keep  myself.

2 Peter 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way,
and are gone astray,
following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor,
who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
