Proverbs 15:27; Proverbs 17:8; Proverbs 17:23; Proverbs 18:16; Proverbs 21:14; Proverbs 28:21; Proverbs 29:4
27 Whoever is vgreedy for unjust gain wtroubles his own household,
but he who hates xbribes will live.
8 yA bribe is like a magic1 stone in the eyes of the one who gives it;
wherever he turns he prospers.
23 The wicked accepts qa bribe in secret1
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.
