11:1 A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
but a just weight is his delight.
23 The fallow ground of the poor would yield much food,
but it is swept away through injustice.
21 Whoever despises his neighbor is a sinner,
but blessed is he who is generous to the poor.
31 Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker,
but he who is generous to the needy honors him.
25 The Lord tears down the house of the proud
but maintains the widow's boundaries.
3 To do righteousness and justice
is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
13 Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor
will himself call out and not be answered.
16 Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth,
or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.
10 Do not move an ancient landmark
or enter the fields of the fatherless,
11 for their Redeemer is strong;
he will plead their cause against you.
7 A righteous man knows the rights of the poor;
a wicked man does not understand such knowledge.
27 An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous,
but one whose way is straight is an abomination to the wicked.
