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 “vanities”.

Deu 32:21 They have moved me to jealousy
with that which is not God;
they have provoked me to anger with their vanities:
and I will move them to jealousy
with those which are not a people;
I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

1Ki 16:13 For all the sins of Baasha,
and the sins of Elah his son, by which they sinned,
and by which they made Israel to sin,
in provoking the LORD God of Israel
to anger with their vanities.

1Ki 16:26 For he walked in all the way of
Jeroboam the son of Nebat,
and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin,
to provoke the LORD God of Israel
to anger with their vanities.

Psa 31:6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities:
but I trust in the LORD.

Ecc 1:2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher,
vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

Ecc 5:7 For in the multitude of dreams
and many words there are also divers vanities:
but fear thou God.

saith the preacher; all is vanity.

Jer 8:19 Behold the voice of the cry of
the daughter of my people
because of them that dwell in a far country:
Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her?
Why have they provoked me to anger
with their graven images,
and with strange vanities?

Jer 10:8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish:
the stock is a doctrine of vanities.

Jer 14:22 Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles
that can cause rain?
or can the heavens give showers?
art not thou he, O LORD our God?
therefore we will wait upon thee:
for thou hast made all these things.

Jon 2:8 They that observe lying vanities
forsake their own mercy.

Act 14:15 And saying, Sirs,
why do ye these things?
We also are men of like passions with you,
and preach unto you that
ye should turn from these vanities
unto the living God,
which made heaven,
and earth,
and the sea,
and all things that are therein:

Act 14:16 Who in times past suffered all nations
to walk in their own ways.
