Proverbs 3:27–28; Proverbs 11:24–26; Proverbs 13:22; Proverbs 14:21; Proverbs 18:16; Proverbs 19:17; Proverbs 21:13; Proverbs 22:9; Proverbs 25:14; Proverbs 28:27

27  rDo not withhold good from those to whom it is due,1

when it is in your power to do it.

28  sDo not say to your neighbor, Go, and come again,

tomorrow I will give itwhen you have it with you.


24  jOne gives kfreely, yet grows all the richer;

another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

25  lWhoever brings blessing mwill be enriched,

and none who waters will himself be watered.

26  oThe people curse him who holds back grain,

but pa blessing is on the head of him who qsells it.


22  zA good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children,

but athe sinner's wealth is laid up for the righteous.


21  Whoever gdespises his neighbor is a sinner,

but hblessed is he who is generous to the poor.


16  A man's qgift makes room for him

and brings him before the great.


17  cWhoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,

and he dwill repay him for his edeed.


13  qWhoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor

will himself call out and not be answered.


aWhoever has a bountiful1 eye will be blessed,

for he bshares his bread with the poor.


14  Like cclouds and wind without rain

is a man who dboasts of a gift he does not give.


27  Whoever vgives to the poor will not want,

but he who whides his eyes will get many a curse.
