Proverbs 21:6; Proverbs 22:16; Proverbs 22:22–23

hThe getting of treasures by a lying tongue

is a ifleeting jvapor and a ksnare of death.1


16  Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth,

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


22  uDo not rob the poor, because he is poor,

or vcrush the afflicted at wthe gate,

23  for xthe Lord will plead their cause

and rob of life those who rob them.
