1 A afalse balance is an abomination to the Lord,
But a bjust weight is His delight.
2 When apride comes, then comes dishonor,
But with the humble is wisdom.
3 The aintegrity of the upright will guide them,
But the bcrookedness of the treacherous will destroy them.
4 aRiches do not profit in the day of wrath,
But brighteousness delivers from death.
5 The arighteousness of the blameless will smooth his way,
But bthe wicked will fall by his own wickedness.
