He who increases his wealth by interest and usury (excessive interest)
Gathers it for him who is gracious to the poor.(A)

He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man],
Even his prayer is repulsive [to God].(B)
He who leads the upright astray on an evil path
Will himself fall into his own pit,
But the blameless will inherit good.

    will fall into their own trap,(E)
    but the blameless will receive a good inheritance.
