2 Because of the transgression of a land, many are its rulers; but it is prolonged by a man of discernment who knows right.
6 Better is the poor who walks in his uprightness than he who is perverse in his ways, though he is rich.
8 He who increases his wealth by interest and unjust gain, he shall gather it for him who will pity the poor.
10 Whoever causes the righteous man to go astray in an evil way, he himself shall fall into his own pit; but the upright shall inherit good.
12 When the righteous rejoice, there is great glory; but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.
13 He who covers his sins shall not be blessed; but whoever confesses and leaves them shall have mercy.
16 A ruler lacking understanding even adds oppressions; he who hates unjust gain shall prolong his days.
17 A man who is pressed down with the blood of a soul shall flee to the pit; do not let them uphold him.
18 Whoever walks uprightly shall be saved; but he who is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
19 He who tills his land shall have plenty of bread, but he pursuing vanities shall have poverty enough.
20 A faithful man shall overflow with blessings, but he who makes haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
22 He who hastens to be rich has an evil eye, and does not know that poverty will come upon him.
23 He who rebukes a man shall afterwards find more favor than he who flatters with the tongue.
24 Whoever robs his father or his mother and says, It is no sin; he shall be a companion to a destroyer.
25 He who is of a proud heart stirs up fighting; but he who puts his trust in Jehovah shall be made fat.
27 He who gives to the poor shall not lack, but he who hides his eyes shall have many a curse.
