Proverbs 22:1-9 NRS

1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.
2 The rich and the poor have this in common: the Lord is the maker of them all.
3 The clever see danger and hide; but the simple go on, and suffer for it.
4 The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.
5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; the cautious will keep far from them.
6 Train children in the right way, and when old, they will not stray.
7 The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
8 Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity, and the rod of anger will fail.
9 Those who are generous are blessed, for they share their bread with the poor.
