The Book of Proverbs Chapter 19

Proverbs 19:1 Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in
his lips, and is a fool.
A man may be poor, but if he is a man of honor, and integrity, and a man that
keeps his word, then he is a man that is valuable to all men. Better is the
poor that walketh in his integrity:
Mark And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the
12:41 treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
Mark And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
12:42
Mark And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this
12:43 poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
Mark For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had,
12:44 even all her living.
