2For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.
6Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
8He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
10Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession.
13He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
16The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.
19He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
20A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
22He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
24Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.
25He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.
