Proverbs 11:24; Proverbs 14:23; Proverbs 22:16

24  jOne gives kfreely, yet grows all the richer;

another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

23  In all toil there is profit,

but mere talk ktends only to poverty.

16  Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth,

or gives to the rich, owill only come to poverty.
