4 gRiches do not profit in the day of wrath,
hbut righteousness delivers from death.
16 uA gracious woman gets honor,
and vviolent men get riches.
17 wA man who is kind benefits himself,
but a cruel man hurts himself.
18 The wicked earns deceptive wages,
but one who xsows righteousness gets a sure reward.
28 Whoever strusts in his riches will fall,
but the righteous will tflourish like a green leaf.
but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.
16 bBetter is a little with the fear of the Lord
than great treasure and trouble with it.
but he who hates xbribes will live.
wherever he turns he prospers.
17 zBread gained by deceit is sweet to a man,
but afterward his mouth will be full of agravel.
21 iAn inheritance gained hastily in the beginning
will not be blessed in the end.
5 The plans of ethe diligent lead surely to abundance,
6 hThe getting of treasures by a lying tongue
7 The violence of the wicked will lsweep them away,
because they refuse to do what is just.
14 rA gift in secret averts anger,
and a concealed bribe,1 strong wrath.
than a rich man who is lcrooked in his ways.
20 A faithful man will abound with blessings,
but whoever hastens to be rich jwill not go unpunished.
