Proverbs 6:30–31; Proverbs 22:22; Proverbs 28:24; Proverbs 29:24; Proverbs 30:7–9
30 People do not despise a thief if he steals
to csatisfy his appetite when he is hungry,
31 but dif he is caught, he will pay esevenfold;
he will give all the goods of his house.
22 uDo not rob the poor, because he is poor,
24 Whoever robs his father or his mother
and says, “That is no transgression,”
is ra companion to a man who destroys.
24 The partner of a thief ghates his own life;
hhe hears the curse, but discloses nothing.
7 Two things I ask of you;
deny them not to me wbefore I die:
8 Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
give me neither poverty nor riches;
feed me with the food that is xneedful for me,
9 lest I be yfull and zdeny you
and say, a“Who is the Lord?”
or lest I be poor and steal
band profane the name of my God.
