“Better is the poore that walketh in his vprightnesse, then he that is peruerse in his wayes, though he be rich.”
King James Version (KJV)
3. A poore man that oppresseth the poore, is like a sweeping raine which leaueth no food. 4. They that forsake the law, praise the wicked: but such as keepe the Law, contend with them. 5. Euill men vnderstand not iudgement: but they that seeke the Lord, vnderstand all things. 6. Better is the poore that walketh in his vprightnesse, then he that is peruerse in his wayes, though he be rich. 7. Whoso keepeth the law, is a wise sonne: but he that is a companion of riotous men, shameth his father. 8. He that by vsurie and vniust gaine increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that wil pity the poore. 9. He that turneth away his eare from hearing the law, euen his prayer shalbe abomination.
