Proverbs 19:1-10

19Better the poor walking in integrity
than one perverse of speech who is a fool.
2Desire without knowledge is not good,
and one who moves too hurriedly misses the way.
3One’s own folly leads to ruin,
yet the heart rages against the Lord.
4Wealth brings many friends,
but the poor are left friendless.
5A false witness will not go unpunished,
and a liar will not escape.
6Many seek the favor of the generous,
and everyone is a friend to a giver of gifts.
7If the poor are hated even by their kin,
how much more are they shunned by their friends!
When they call after them, they are not there. 8To get wisdom is to love oneself;
to keep understanding is to prosper.
9A false witness will not go unpunished,
and the liar will perish.
10It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury,
much less for a slave to rule over princes.
