but he who hates xbribes will live.

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.
16 If you have ffound honey, eat gonly enough for you,
lest you have your fill of it and vomit it.

6 kBetter is a poor man who lwalks in his integrity
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.
