Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys, thy flowing valley, O backsliding daughter? that trusted in her treasures, saying, Who shall come unto me?

Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys? Thy valley shall flow down, O backsliding daughter, that trusteth in her treasures, saying, Who shall come against me?
World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation
What -- dost thou boast thyself in valleys? Flowed hath thy valley, O backsliding daughter, Who is trusting in her treasures: Who doth come in unto me?

CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
49:4 Flowing - Either flowing with water, or plenty of corn and grass.
1 Timothy 6:17
Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment.
Don't make your living by extortion or put your hope in stealing. And if your wealth increases, don't make it the center of your life.
This is what the LORD says: "Don't let the wise boast in their wisdom, or the powerful boast in their power, or the rich boast in their riches.
I will personally fight against the people in Jerusalem, that mighty fortress--the people who boast, "No one can touch us here. No one can break in here."
How long will you wander, my wayward daughter? For the LORD will cause something new to happen--Israel will embrace her God."
With your wisdom and understanding you have amassed great wealth--gold and silver for your treasuries.
Yes, your wisdom has made you very rich, and your riches have made you very proud.
