16 A man’s qgift makes room for him
and brings him before the great.
4 fWealth brings many new friends,
fbut a poor man is deserted by his friend.
6 Many seek the favor of a generous man,1
and everyone is a friend to a man who gives igifts.
11 He who floves purity of heart,
29 Do you see a man skillful in his work?
He will bstand before kings;
he will not stand before obscure men.
