and none who waters will himself be watered.
26 oThe people curse him who holds back grain,
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,
13 qWhoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor
will himself call out and not be answered.
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.
