|Bible in Basic English (BBE)
||New International Version (NIV)
16 He who is cruel to the poor for the purpose of increasing his profit, and he who gives to the man of wealth, will only come to be in need.
16 He who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and he who gives gifts to the rich--both come to poverty.
