Proverbs 22:1-2, 8-9, 22-23
22A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
and favor is better than silver or gold.
2The rich and the poor have this in common:
the Lord is the maker of them all.
7The rich rule over the poor,
and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
8Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity,
and the rod of anger will fail.
22Do not rob the poor because they are poor,
or crush the afflicted at the gate;
23for the Lord pleads their cause
and despoils of life those who despoil them.
