Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
6 Many seek the favor of a generous man, and every one is a friend to a man who gives gifts. 6 Many curry favor with a ruler, and everyone is the friend of a man who gives gifts.
7 All a poor man's brothers hate him; how much more do his friends go far from him! He pursues them with words, but does not have them. 7 A poor man is shunned by all his relatives-- how much more do his friends avoid him! Though he pursues them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found.
