15 bA rich man’s wealth is his strong city;
the poverty of the poor is their ruin.
8 The ransom of a man’s life is his wealth,
but a poor man chears no threat.
16 bBetter is a little with the fear of the Lord
than great treasure and trouble with it.
8 xBetter is a little with righteousness
than great revenues with injustice.
27 Whoever vgives to the poor will not want,
but he who whides his eyes will get many a curse.
7 A righteous man mknows the rights of the poor;
a wicked man does not nunderstand such knowledge.
14 If a king tfaithfully judges the poor,
his throne will ube established forever.
