Proverbs 19:1-10 NRS

1 Better the poor walking in integrity than one perverse of speech who is a fool.
2 Desire without knowledge is not good, and one who moves too hurriedly misses the way.
3 One's own folly leads to ruin, yet the heart rages against the Lord.
4 Wealth brings many friends, but the poor are left friendless.
5 A false witness will not go unpunished, and a liar will not escape.
6 Many seek the favor of the generous, and everyone is a friend to a giver of gifts.
7 If the poor are hated even by their kin, how much more are they shunned by their friends! When they call after them, they are not there. a
