Treasure Island, chapter 32

How are Silver and Dick ( the buccaneer with the Bible) similar in their pursuit of the treasure? How do they differ?

Dick is really young and weak. He is nowhere in Silver's league when it comes to surviving this ordeal. He happens to have a Bible offers it to Tom Morgan and George Merry when they try to dispose of Silver. Silver turns the tables on Dick telling him that he has cursed himself for misusing the Bible in such a way. Dick becomes terrified and eventually dies of sickness.
