“Whoever walks in integrity
Will be safe.
But whoever follows crooked ways will fall into the pit.
Anyone who tills his land
Will have plenty of bread.
But one who follows worthless pursuits
Will have plenty of poverty.
The faithful will abound with blessings.
But whoever is in a hurry to be rich
Will not go unpunished.”
If you walk in integrity, you will be safe. However, if you follow the crooked ways, you will fall into the pit of death. Then repeating a phrase from chapter 12, if you till the land you will have plenty of bread. On the other hand, if you pursue worthless pursuits, you will end up with plenty of poverty. The faithful will have many blessings, but those who are in a hurry to become rich will not go unpunished.
