He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man],
Even his prayer is repulsive [to God].(A)
He who leads the upright astray on an evil path
Will himself fall into his own pit,
But the blameless will inherit good.
The rich man [who is conceited and relies on his wealth instead of God] is wise in his own eyes,
But the poor man who has understanding [because he relies on God] is able to see through him.
