19 oHe that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread:
But he that pfolloweth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
20 A faithful man shall abound with blessings:
But qhe that maketh haste to be rich shall not be ||innocent.
21 rTo have respect of persons is not good:
For sfor a piece of bread that man will transgress.
22 ||tHe that uhasteth to be rich hath van evil eye,
And considereth not that wpoverty shall come upon him.
23 xHe that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour
Than he that yflattereth with the tongue.
24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother,
And saith, It is no transgression;
The same zis the companion of †za destroyer.
25 aHe that is bof a proud heart cstirreth up strife:
But he that putteth his trust in the Lord dshall be made fat.
26 eHe that trusteth in his own heart is a fool:
But whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
27 fHe that giveth unto the poor gshall not lack:
But he that hhideth his eyes shall have many a curse.
28 iWhen the wicked rise, men khide themselves:
But when they perish, the righteous increase.
