Third Millennium Bible w/ Apocrypha (TMBA) New International Version (NIV)
6 Many will entreat the favor of the prince, and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts. 6 Many curry favor with a ruler, and everyone is the friend of a man who gives gifts.
7 All the brethren of the poor hate him--how much more do his friends go far from him! He pursueth them with words, yet they are not forthcoming to him. 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.
