but he who hates xbribes will live.
wherever he turns he prospers.
to rpervert the ways of justice.
16 A man’s qgift makes room for him
and brings him before the great.
14 rA gift in secret averts anger,
and a concealed bribe,1 strong wrath.
21 To show kpartiality is not good,
but for la piece of bread a man will do wrong.
4 By justice a king hbuilds up the land,
but he who exacts gifts1 tears it down.
