"Better a poor man who walks in his integrity than he who is crooked in his ways and rich." - Proverbs 28:6

Chapter 28

1] The wicked man flees although no one pursues him; but the just man, like a lion, feels sure of himself.
2] If a land is rebellious, its princes will be many; but with a prudent man it knows security.
3] A rich man who oppresses the poor is like a devastating rain that leaves no food.
4] Those who abandon the law praise the wicked man, but those who keep the law war against him.
5] Evil men understand nothing of justice, but those who seek the LORD understand all.
6] Better a poor man who walks in his integrity than he who is crooked in his ways and rich.
7] He who keeps the law is a wise son, but the gluttons' companion disgraces his father.
8] He who increases his wealth by interest and overcharge gathers it for him who is kind to the poor.
9] When one turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination.
10] He who seduces the upright into an evil way will himself fall into his own pit. (And blameless men will gain prosperity.)
11] The rich man is wise in his own eyes, but a poor man who is intelligent sees through him.
12] When the just are triumphant, there is great jubilation; but when the wicked gain preeminence, people hide.
13] He who conceals his sins prospers not, but he who confesses and forsakes them obtains mercy.
14] Happy the man who is always on his guard; but he who hardens his heart will fall into evil.
15] Like a roaring lion or a ravenous bear is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
16] The less prudent the prince, the more his deeds oppress. He who hates ill-gotten gain prolongs his days.
17] Though a man burdened with human blood were to flee to the grave, none should support him.
18] He who walks uprightly is safe, but he whose ways are crooked falls into the pit.
19] He who cultivates his land will have plenty of food, but from idle pursuits a man has his fill of poverty.
20] The trustworthy man will be richly blessed; he who is in haste to grow rich will not go unpunished.
21] To show partiality is never good: for even a morsel of bread a man may do wrong.
22] The avaricious man is perturbed about his wealth, and he knows not when want will come upon him.
23] He who rebukes a man gets more thanks in the end than one with a flattering tongue.
24] He who defrauds father or mother and calls it no sin, is a partner of the brigand.
25] The greedy man stirs up disputes, but he who trusts in the LORD will prosper.
26] He who trusts in himself is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom is safe.
27] He who gives to the poor suffers no want, but he who ignores them gets many a curse.
28] When the wicked gain pre-eminence, other men hide; but at their fall the just flourish.
