Dives divitias non congregat...

This rhyming distich comes from the Florilegium Gottingense edited by Voigt.

Dives divitias non congregat absque labore,
Non tenet absque metu, non deserit absque dolore.

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. There are three words which are not on the DCC list:

absque - without, apart from, away from
congrego -āre - collect, assemble, bring together
dīvitiae, dīvitiārum - riches, wealth

dēsero -ere dēseruī dēsertum: leave, desert, abandon
dīves, dīvitis: rich (poet. dīs, dītis)
dolor -ōris m.: pain, grief
labor -ōris m.: toil, exertion
metus -ūs m.: fear, dread
nōn: not
teneo -ēre -uī tentum: hold
