Proverbs 13:7–8; Proverbs 13:11; Proverbs 13:22

aOne pretends to be rich,1 yet has nothing;

banother pretends to be poor,2 yet has great wealth.

The ransom of a man's life is his wealth,

but a poor man chears no threat.


11  gWealth gained hastily1 will dwindle,

but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.


22  zA good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children,

but athe sinner's wealth is laid up for the righteous.
