Proverbs: Poverty
6:10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
6:11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
10:15 The rich man's wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty.
11:24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
13:7 There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.
13:8 The ransom of a man's life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke.
14:20 The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.
19:4 Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.
28:3 A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.
30:9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.
