When thou wilt do good know to whom thou doest it; so shalt thou be thanked for thy benefits.
Do good to the godly man, and thou shalt find a recompence; and if not from him, yet from the most High.
There can no good come to him that is always occupied in evil, nor to him that giveth no alms.
Give to the godly man, and help not a sinner.
Do well unto him that is lowly, but give not to the ungodly: hold back thy bread, and give it not unto him, lest he overmaster thee thereby: for else thou shalt receive twice as much evil for all the good thou shalt have done unto him.
For the most High hateth sinners, and will repay vengeance unto the ungodly, and keepeth them against the mighty day of their punishment.
Give unto the good, and help not the sinner.
A friend cannot be known in prosperity: and an enemy cannot be hidden in adversity.
In the prosperity of a man enemies will be grieved: but in his adversity even a friend will depart.
Never trust thine enemy: for like as iron rusteth, so is his wickedness.
