Blake shows Job ritualistically providing charity to a poor man. Out of his abundance Job made the required donation. The confusion of the exchange of money for the practice of human values which support brotherhood is a symptom of Job's need to reach a higher level of spiritual understanding.
On his engraving of the Laocoon sculpture Blake made several statements about Art as the fundamental principle which guides the development of consciousness in the Earthly realm. Being guided by the principle of Money stifles consciousness and thwarts spiritual development. For Blake, Art was an inclusive term which covered all those activities which nourished the body/spirit of man.
Laocoon, (E 273) "For every Pleasure Money Is Useless Where any view of Money exists Art cannot be carried on Christianity is Art & not Money Money is its Curse The whole Business of Man Is The Arts & All Things Common Prayer is the Study of Art Praise is the Practise of Art Fasting &c. all relate to Art The outward Ceremony is Antichrist Without Unceasing Practise nothing can be done Practise is Art If you leave off you are Lost A Poet a Painter a Musician an Architect: the Man Or Woman who is not one of these is not a Christian You must leave Fathers & Mothers & Houses & Lands if they stand in the way of ART"Mark 10
 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,
 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
