Proverbs 14:31-33 New English Translation (NET Bible)

31 The one who oppresses the poor insults his Creator,
but whoever shows favor to the needy honors him.
32 The wicked will be thrown down in his trouble,
but the righteous have refuge even in the threat of death.
33 Wisdom rests in the heart of the discerning;
it is known even in the heart of fools.
