Proverbs 22:1, 2, 4, 7, 9
1 A good name is more desirable than great riches;
to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
2 Rich and poor have this in common:
The Lord is the Maker of them all.
4 Humility is the fear of the Lord;
its wages are riches and honor and life.
7 The rich rule over the poor,
and the borrower is slave to the lender.
9 The generous will themselves be blessed,
for they share their food with the poor.
