Proverbs 11:23-24; Proverbs 14:23; Proverbs 17:11; Proverbs 21:5; Proverbs 22:16
The desire of the righteous is only good, But the expectation of the wicked is wrath.
There is one who scatters, and yet increases all the more, And there is one who withholds what is justly due, and yet it results only in want.
In all labor there is profit, But mere talk leads only to poverty.
A rebellious man seeks only evil, So a cruel messenger will be sent against him.
The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage, But everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty.
He who oppresses the poor to make more for himself Or who gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.
