A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.
He who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and he who gives gifts to the rich — both come to poverty.
A ruler who oppresses the poor is like a driving rain that leaves no crops.
He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses.
The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.
If a king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will always be secure.
