020:022:001
A GOOD name is rather to be chosen than great riches,
and loving favour rather than silver and gold.


020:022:002
The rich and poor meet together:
the LORD is the maker of them all.


020:022:003
A prudent man foreseeth the evil,
and hideth himself:
but the simple pass on,
and are punished.


020:022:004
By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches,
and honour,
and life.


020:022:005
Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward:
he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.


020:022:006
Train up a child in the way he should go:
and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.


020:022:007
The rich ruleth over the poor,
and the borrower is servant to the lender.


020:022:008
He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity:
and the rod of his anger shall fail.


020:022:009
He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed;
for he giveth of his bread to the poor.


020:022:010
Cast out the scorner,
and contention shall go out;
yea,
strife and reproach shall cease.


020:022:011
He that loveth pureness of heart,
for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.


020:022:012
The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge,
and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.


020:022:013
The slothful man saith,
There is a lion without,
I shall be slain in the streets.


020:022:014
The mouth of strange women is a deep pit:
he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.


020:022:015
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child;
but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.


020:022:016
He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches,
and he that giveth to the rich,
shall surely come to want.


020:022:017
Bow down thine ear,
and hear the words of the wise,
and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.


020:022:018
For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee;
they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.


020:022:019
That thy trust may be in the LORD,
I have made known to thee this day,
even to thee.


020:022:020
Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,


020:022:021
That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth;
that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?


020:022:022
Rob not the poor,
because he is poor:
neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:


020:022:023
For the LORD will plead their cause,
and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.


020:022:024
Make no friendship with an angry man;
and with a furious man thou shalt not go:


020:022:025
Lest thou learn his ways,
and get a snare to thy soul.


020:022:026
Be not thou one of them that strike hands,
or of them that are sureties for debts.


020:022:027
If thou hast nothing to pay,
why should he take away thy bed from under thee?


020:022:028
Remove not the ancient landmark,
which thy fathers have set.


020:022:029
Seest thou a man diligent in his business?
he shall stand before kings;
he shall not stand before mean men.
