Proverbs 22:1-9 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
1 1A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold. 2 2The rich and the poor meet together; the LORD is 3the maker of them all. 3 4The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it. 4 The reward for humility and fear of the LORD is 5riches and honor and life.a 5 6Thorns and snares are in the way of the crooked; whoever 7guards his soul will keep far from them. 6 8Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. 7 9The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender. 8 Whoever 10sows injustice will reap calamity, and 11the rod of his fury will fail. 9 12Whoever has a bountifulb eye will be blessed, for he 13shares his bread with the poor.
