Proverbs 22:4
Context
A Good Name More Desirable Than Riches

1A GOOD name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold. 2The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all. 3A prudent man foresees the evil, and hides himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. 4By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honor, and life. 5Thorns and snares are in the way of the fraudulent: he that does keep his soul shall be far from them. 6Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. 7The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender. 8He that sows iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail. 9He that has a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he gives of his bread to the poor. 10Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yes, strife and reproach shall cease. 11He that loves pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend. 12The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he overthrows the words of the transgressor. 13The slothful man said, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets. 14The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein. 15Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. 16He that oppresses the poor to increase his riches, and he that gives to the rich, shall surely come to want. 17Bow down your ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply your heart to my knowledge. 18For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; they shall with be fitted in your lips. 19That your trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to you this day, even to you. 20Have not I written to you excellent things in counsels and knowledge, 21That I might make you know the certainty of the words of truth; that you might answer the words of truth to them that send to you? 22Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate: 23For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. 24Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man you shall not go: 25Lest you learn his ways, and get a snare to your soul. 26Be not you one of them that strike hands, or of them that are sureties for debts. 27If you have nothing to pay, why should he take away your bed from under you? 28Remove not the ancient landmark, which your fathers have set. 29See you a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
