3 From the one who sits on a glorious throne to the wretch in dust and ashes,
13 Ill-gotten wealth will vanish like a torrent, like the single thunder-clap that heralds rain.
15 The sprigs of the godless will not make many branches, tainted roots find only hard rock.
17 Charity is a very paradise of blessing and almsgiving endures for ever.
22 The eye longs for grace and beauty; better than either, the green of spring corn.
24 Brothers and allies are good in times of trouble; better than either, almsgiving to the rescue.
26 Money and strength make a confident heart; better than either, the fear of the Lord. With fear of the Lord, nothing is lacking: no need to seek for other help.
27 Fear of the Lord is a paradise of blessing, a better protection than the highest reputation.
