Balances of deceit [are] an abomination to Jehovah, And a perfect weight [is] His delight.
Pride hath come, and shame cometh, And with the lowly [is] wisdom.
The integrity of the upright leadeth them, And the perverseness of the treacherous destroyeth them.
Wealth profiteth not in a day of wrath, And righteousness delivereth from death.
The righteousness of the perfect maketh right his way, And by his wickedness doth the wicked fall.
The righteousness of the upright delivereth them, And in mischief the treacherous are captured.
In the death of a wicked man, hope perisheth, And the expectation of the iniquitous hath been lost.
