15 bA rich man’s wealth is his strong city;
the poverty of the poor is their ruin.
20 eThe poor is disliked even by his neighbor,
fbut the rich has many friends.
11 lA rich man’s wealth is his strong city,
and like a high wall in his imagination.
23 The poor use entreaties,
but ythe rich answer roughly.
2 qThe rich and the poor meet together;
the Lord is rthe Maker of them all.
7 xThe rich rules over the poor,
and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
16 Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth,
or gives to the rich, owill only come to poverty.
than a rich man who is lcrooked in his ways.
11 A rich man is wise in his town eyes,
but a poor man who has understanding uwill find him out.
