Proverbs 22:1-9 RSV

1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.
2 The rich and the poor meet together; the LORD is the maker of them all.
3 A prudent man sees danger and hides himself; but the simple go on, and suffer for it.
4 The reward for humility and fear of the LORD is riches and honor and life.
5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; he who guards himself will keep far from them.
6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
7 The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
8 He who sows injustice will reap calamity, and the rod of his fury will fail.
9 He who has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.
