The wicked man fleeth, when no man pursueth: but the just, bold as a lion, shall be without dread.
For the sins of the land many are the princes thereof: and for the wisdom of a man, and the knowledge of those things that are said, the life of the prince shall be prolonged.
A poor man that oppresseth the poor, is like a violent shower, which bringeth a famine.
They that forsake the law, praise the wicked man: they that keep it, are incensed against him.
Evil men think not on judgment: but they that seek after the Lord, take notice of all things.
Better is the poor man walking in his simplicity, than the rich in crooked ways.
He that keepeth the law, is a wise son: but he that feedeth gluttons, shameth his father.
He that heapeth together riches by usury and loan, gathereth them for him that will be bountiful to the poor.
He that turneth away his ears from hearing the law, his prayer shall be an abomination.
He that deceiveth the just in a wicked way, shall fall in his own destruction: and the upright shall possess his goods.
The rich man seemeth to himself wise: but the poor man that is prudent shall search him out.
