The rich and the poor have this in common:
Yahweh is the maker of them all.

A prudent man sees danger, and hides himself;
but the simple pass on, and suffer for it.

is wealth, honor, and life.

whoever guards his soul stays from them.

He who sows wickedness reaps trouble,
and the rod of his fury will be destroyed.
