Proverbs 28:1-9

28The wicked flee when no one pursues,
but the righteous are as bold as a lion.
2When a land rebels
it has many rulers;
but with an intelligent ruler
there is lasting order.
3A ruler who oppresses the poor
is a beating rain that leaves no food.
4Those who forsake the law praise the wicked,
but those who keep the law struggle against them.
5The evil do not understand justice,
but those who seek the Lord understand it completely.
6Better to be poor and walk in integrity
than to be crooked in one’s ways even though rich.
7Those who keep the law are wise children,
but companions of gluttons shame their parents.
8One who augments wealth by exorbitant interest
gathers it for another who is kind to the poor.
9When one will not listen to the law,
even one’s prayers are an abomination.
