Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda
Generally, the wealth of misers never allows them any happiness. In this life it causes their self-torment, and when they die it sends them to hell.
A miser is afraid to spend his money even for obligatory religious and social duties. Offending God and people in general, he goes to hell.
