18 but these men ulie in wait for their own blood;
they uset an ambush for their own lives.
xit takes away the life of its possessors.
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.
26 All day long he craves and craves,
but the righteous hgives and does not hold back.
22 pA good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
and favor is better than silver or gold.
lest you have your fill of it and vomit it.
and vnever satisfied are the eyes of man.
than a rich man who is lcrooked in his ways.
and does not know that opoverty will come upon him.
25 A greedy man sstirs up strife,
but the one who trusts in the Lord will tbe enriched.
4 By justice a king hbuilds up the land,
but he who exacts gifts1 tears it down.
