Those who give generously receive more,
but those who are stingy with what is appropriate will grow needy.
Generous persons will prosper;
those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.
People curse those who hoard grain,
but they bless those who sell it.
Those who look for good find favor,
but those who seek evil—it will come to them.
Those who trust in their wealth will wither,
but the righteous will thrive like leafy trees.
Those who trouble their family will inherit the wind.
The fool will be servant to the wise.
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
and the wise gather lives.
If the righteous receive their due on earth,
how much more the wicked and sinners?
