Proverbs 14:31-33 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

31 The one who oppresses the poor person insults his Maker,
but one who is kind to the needy honors Him.

32 The wicked one is thrown down by his own sin,
but the righteous one has a refuge in his death.

33 Wisdom resides in the heart of the discerning;
she is known[a] even among fools.
