When it is in your power,a don't withhold good from the one to whom it is due.
Don't say to your neighbor, "Go away! Come back later. I'll give it tomorrow"-when it is there with you.
Don't plan any harm against your neighbor, for he trusts you and lives near you.
Don't accuse anyone without cause,b when he has done you no harm.
Don't envy a violent manc or choose any of his ways;
for the devious are detestable to the Lord, but He is a friendd to the upright.e33
The Lord's curse is on the household of the wicked, but He blesses the home of the righteous;
He mocks those who mock, but gives grace to the humble.f35
The wise will inherit honor, but He holds up fools to dishonor.g
