Sirach 13:22
When the rich slip, their helpers are many; they speak things that shouldn’t be spoken, and people justify them. The humble slip, and people criticize them as well; they utter something sensible, and no one pays attention.
What fellowship hath a holy man with a dog, or what part hath the rich with the poor?
When someone rich makes a mistake, there are many people to cover up for him and explain away all the things he never should have said. But let someone poor make a mistake, and he gets nothing but criticism. Even if what he says makes good sense, nobody will listen.
When the rich speak they have many supporters; though what they say is repugnant, it wins approval. When the poor speak people say, “Come, come, speak up!” though they are talking sense, they get no hearing.
If the rich person slips, many come to the rescue; he speaks unseemly words, but they justify him. If the humble person slips, they even criticize him; he talks sense, but is not given a hearing.

Many recoverers (or helpers) be to a rich man deceived; he spake proudly, and they justified him. (But) A meek man is deceived, furthermore also he is reproved; he spake wisely, and no place was given to him. [To the rich deceived many be recoverers; he spake proudly, and they justified him. The meek is deceived, furthermore and reproved; he spake wisely well, and there is not given to him a place.]
