Proverbs 22

1  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.

2  The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.

3  A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.

4  By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.

5  Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.

6  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

7  The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

8  He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.

9  He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.

10  Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease.
