The poor (Prov 28:6-28:7)

“Better to be poor

Walking in integrity

Than to be crooked

In one’s ways

As a rich person.

Whoever keeps the law

Is a wise child.

But companions of gluttons

Shames their parents.”

It is better to be a poor man with integrity than a rich man with crooked ways as was indicated in chapter 19. If you keep the law, you are a wise child. However, if you are a companion of gluttons, you bring shame to your parents.
