“There is that buyeth much for a little, and repayeth it seuen fold.”
King James Version (KJV)
9. There is a sinner that hath good successe in euill things; and there is a gaine that turneth to losse. 10. There is a gift that shall not profit thee; and there is a gift whose recompence is double. 11. There is an abasement because of glory; and there is that lifteth vp his head from a low estate. 12. There is that buyeth much for a little, and repayeth it seuen fold. 13. A wise man by his words maketh himselfe beloued: but the graces of fooles shalbe powred out. 14. The gift of a foole shall doe thee no good when thou hast it; neither yet of the enuious for his necessitie: for hee looketh to receiue many things for one. 15. Hee giueth little and vpbraideth much; hee openeth his mouth like a crier; to day he lendeth, and to morrow will he aske it againe: such an one is to be hated of God and man.
