New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
26 The people curse those who hold back grain, but a blessing is on the head of those who sell it. 26 People curse the man who hoards grain, but blessing crowns him who is willing to sell.
27 Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor, but evil comes to the one who searches for it. 27 He who seeks good finds goodwill, but evil comes to him who searches for it.
28 Those who trust in their riches will wither, but the righteous will flourish like green leaves. 28 Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.
29 Those who trouble their households will inherit wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise. 29 He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise.
30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, but violence takes lives away. 30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.
31 If the righteous are repaid on earth, how much more the wicked and the sinner! 31 If the righteous receive their due on earth, how much more the ungodly and the sinner!
