Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
and the man became rich, and continued to grow richer until he became very wealthy;

King James Bible
And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

Holman Christian Standard Bible
and the man became rich and kept getting richer until he was very wealthy.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

And the man waxed great. Dr. Adam Clarke remarks, that there is a strange and observable occurrence of the same term in the original, which is literally, 'And the man was GREAT, and he went, going on, and was GREAT, until that he was exceeding GREAT.' How simple is this language, and yet how forcible!

waxed great.

Genesis 24:35 And the LORD has blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: …

Psalm 112:3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endures for ever.

went forward. Heb. went going.
