John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 13:22

A good [man] leaveth an inheritance to his children's
He not only has a sufficiency for the present support of himself and family; but is so prospered and succeeded, as to leave an inheritance after him; and which is continued to and enjoyed, not only by his immediate offspring, but theirs also; for being got honestly, it wears well; see ( Proverbs 13:11 ) ; and the wealth of the sinner [is] laid up for the just;
the riches which wicked men get are laid up in the purposes of God for good men; and in his providence they are translated from the one to the other: so the riches of the Egyptians were designed for the Israelites, and by the providence of God were put into their hands; see ( Job 27:16 Job 27:17 ) ( Proverbs 28:8 ) ( Ecclesiastes 2:26 ) .
