Discerning Or Foolish Son
7 A discerning son heeds instruction,
but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father.
A reasonable person follows a decent path.
A fool does not contemplate his path.
Blameless Poor Or Perverse Rich
6 Better the poor whose walk is blameless
than the rich whose ways are perverse.
New International Version (NIV)
A righteous life is more precious than wealth.
5 Evildoers do not understand what is right,
but those who seek the Lord understand it fully.
Villains cannot discern righteousness.
Followers of the Lord easily grasp it.
Praising The Wicked

A ruler who oppresses the poor
is like a driving rain that leaves no crops.
Should a government that enslaves the poor survive?
Hamstringing the poor is criminal.
The empty promises of wicked officials do not help the poor.
They enslave the poor.
