25 The 1generous man will be prosperous, And he who 2waters will himself be watered.
26 He who withholds grain, the 3people will curse him, But 4blessing will be on the head of him who 5sells it.
27 He who diligently seeks good seeks favor, But 6he who seeks evil, evil will come to him.
28 He who 7trusts in his riches will fall, But 8the righteous will flourish like the green leaf.
29 He who 9troubles his own house will 10inherit wind, And 11the foolish will be servant to the wisehearted.
30 The fruit of the righteous is 12a tree of life, And 13he who is wise wins souls.
31 If 14the righteous will be rewarded in the earth, How much * more the wicked and the sinner!
