“Hee that is greedy of gaine, troubleth his owne house: but he that hateth gifts, shall liue.”
King James Version (KJV)
24. The way of life is aboue to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath. 25. The Lord will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow. 26. The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord: but the wordes of the pure, are pleasant words. 27. Hee that is greedy of gaine, troubleth his owne house: but he that hateth gifts, shall liue. 28. The heart of the righteous studieth to answere: but the mouth of the wicked, powreth out euil things. 29. The Lord is farre from the wicked: but hee heareth the prayer of the righteous. 30. The light of the eyes reioyceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat.
