Confiscation is taking and keeping things which belong to others; and when we do not give alms, we are punished in the same way as those who who are confiscating.
Greek Original:
Εὐποιία. ὅτι ἀποστέρησίς ἐστι τὸ τὰ ἀλλοτρία λαβόντας κατέχειν, καὶ ὅταν ἐλεημοσύνην μὴ παρασχῶμεν, ἐν ἴσῳ τοῖς ἀποστεροῦσι κολαζόμεθα.
From alpha 3553 (q.v.); and cf. epsilon 785. The headword noun is derived from the verb εὐποιέω (epsilon 3673).
