Proverbs 22:1-9 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Choose a good reputation over great riches, for being held in high esteem is better than having silver or gold. 2 The rich and the poor have this in common: The LORD made them both. 3 A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. 4 True humility and fear of the LORD lead to riches, honor, and long life. 5 The deceitful walk a thorny, treacherous road; whoever values life will stay away. 6 Teach your children to choose the right path, and when they are older, they will remain upon it. 7 Just as the rich rule the poor, so the borrower is servant to the lender. 8 Those who plant seeds of injustice will harvest disaster, and their reign of terror will end. 9 Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor.
