A Concluding Prayer

Found-In-Translation Introduction

Proverbs 22:2 (Contemporary English Version) The rich and the poor are all created by the LORD. Proverbs 8:10-11 (English Standard Version) Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.

Generosity
Proverbs 11:24-26 (New International Version) One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. People curse the man who hoards grain, but blessing crowns him who is willing to sell. Proverbs 14:21+31 (The Message) It's criminal to ignore a neighbor in need, but compassion for the poor—what a blessing! You insult your Maker when you exploit the powerless; when you're kind to the poor, you honor God. Proverbs 21:13 (New Living Translation) Those who shut their ears to the cries of the poor will be ignored in their own time of need. Proverbs 31:20 (Amplified Bible) She opens her hand to the poor, yes, she reaches out her filled hands to the needy

Greed
Proverbs 11:6+26 (New Century Version) Doing right brings freedom to honest people, but those who are not trustworthy will be caught by their own desires. People curse those who keep all the grain, but they bless the one who is willing to sell it.

Proverbs 23:4-8 (New American Standard Bible) Do not weary yourself to gain wealth, Cease from your consideration of it. When you set your eyes on it, it is gone. For wealth certainly makes itself wings Like an eagle that flies toward the heavens. Do not eat the bread of a selfish man, Or desire his delicacies; For as he thinks within himself, so he is. He says to you, "Eat and drink!" But his heart is not with you. You will vomit up the morsel you have eaten, And waste your compliments. Proverbs 23:10-11 (New International Version) Do not move an ancient boundary stone or encroach on the fields of the fatherless, for their Defender is strong; he will take up their case against you. Proverbs 28:24-25 (New Century Version) Whoever robs father or mother and says, "It's not wrong," is just like someone who destroys things. A greedy person causes trouble, but the one who trusts the Lord will succeed.

Poverty
Proverbs 15:16-17 (Amplified Bible) Better is little with the reverent, worshipful fear of the Lord than great and rich treasure and trouble with it. Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a fatted ox and hatred with it. Proverbs 19:1 (King James Version) Better is a poor man that walketh in his integrity Than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool. Proverbs 28:6 (New Living Translation) It is better to be poor and honest than rich and crooked. Proverbs 19:22 (Young’s Literal Translation) The desireableness of a man is his kindness, And better is the poor than a liar.

Proverbs 17:5 (English Standard Version) Whoever mocks the poor insults his Maker; he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished. Proverbs 29:7 (New American Standard) The righteous is concerned for the rights of the poor, The wicked does not understand such concern.

Riches
Proverbs 3:9-10 (New Living Translation) Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine. Proverbs 11:4 (New American Standard Bible) Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, But righteousness delivers from death. Proverbs 13:7-8 (New International Version) One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth. A man's riches may ransom his life, but a poor man hears no threat. Proverbs 18:10-11 (English Standard Version) The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous man runs into it and is safe. A rich man’s wealth is his strong city, And like a high wall in his imagination. Proverbs 22:7 (New International Reader's Version) Rich people rule over those who are poor. Borrowers are slaves to lenders. Proverbs 23:4-5 (New International Version) Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.
