Proverbs 22:7-16

The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.22.7 the lender: Heb. the man that lendeth He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.22.8 the rod…: or, with the rod of his anger he shall be consumed He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.22.9 He that…: Heb. Good of eye Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease. He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.22.11 for…: or, and hath grace in his lips The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.22.12 the words: or, the matters The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets. The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein. Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.
