16 Acquire wisdom- how much better it is than gold! And acquire understanding- it is preferable to silver. 1 A good name is to be chosen over great wealth; favor is better than silver and gold. 2 The rich and the poor have this in common: the Lord made them both. 4 Don't wear yourself out to get rich; stop giving your attention to it. 5 As soon as your eyes fly to it, it disappears, for it makes wings for itself and flies like an eagle to the sky. 20 A faithful man will have many blessings, but one in a hurry to get rich will not go unpunished. 7 Two things I ask of You; don't deny them to me before I die: 8 Keep falsehood and deceitful words far from me. Give me neither poverty nor wealth; feed me with the food I need. 9 Otherwise, I might have too much and deny You, saying, "Who is the Lord?" or I might have nothing and steal, profaning the name of my God. 11 Wealth obtained by fraud will dwindle, but whoever earns it through labor will multiply it. 27 The one who profits dishonestly troubles his household, but the one who hates bribes will live. 17 Food gained by fraud is sweet to a man, but afterwards his mouth is full of gravel. 6 Making a fortune through a lying tongue is a vanishing mist, a pursuit of death. 16 Oppressing the poor to enrich oneself, and giving to the rich-both lead only to poverty. 6 Better a poor man who lives with integrity than a rich man who distorts right and wrong. 8 Whoever increases his wealth through excessive interest collects it for one who is kind to the poor. 24 The one who robs his father or mother and says, "That's no sin," is a companion to a man who destroys. 9 Honor the Lord with your possessions and with the first produce of your entire harvest; 10 then your barns will be completely filled, and your vats will overflow with new wine. 28 Anyone trusting in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like foliage. 8 Better a little with righteousness than great income with injustice.
