All About Life

7 Whoever keeps the law [of God and man] is a wise son, but he who is a companion of gluttons and the carousing, self-indulgent, and extravagant shames his father. 8 He who by charging excessive interest and who by unjust efforts to get gain increases his material possession gathers it for him [to spend] who is kind and generous to the poor. 9 He who turns away his ear from hearing the law [of God and man], even his prayer is an abomination, hateful and revolting [to God].
