A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.
A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
A gift in secret pacifieth anger: and a reward in the bosom strong wrath.
Surely oppression maketh a wise man mad; and a gift destroyeth the heart.
And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.
The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.
To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.
In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.
Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen.
They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.
