Proverbs 11:1-7 MSG

1 God hates cheating in the marketplace; he loves it when business is aboveboard.
2 The stuck-up fall flat on their faces, but down-to-earth people stand firm.
3 The integrity of the honest keeps them on track; the deviousness of crooks brings them to ruin.
4 A thick bankroll is no help when life falls apart, but a principled life can stand up to the worst.
5 Moral character makes for smooth traveling; an evil life is a hard life.
6 Good character is the best insurance; crooks get trapped in their sinful lust.
7 When the wicked die, that's it - the story's over, end of hope.
