Proverbs 14:31-33 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

31 Whoever oppresses the poor insults his maker,
    but whoever is kind to the needy honors him.
32 A wicked person is thrown down by his own wrongdoing,
    but even in his death a righteous person has a refuge.
33 Wisdom finds rest in the heart of an understanding person.
    Even fools recognize this.[a]
