Sirach 13:3
Rich people inflict injury, but then act as if they’re the ones who have been wronged; the poor suffer injury, but they’re the ones who must apologize.
What agreement shall the earthen pot have with the kettle? for if they knock one against the other, it shall be broken.
If a rich person wrongs someone, he can afford to add insult to injury; but if a poor person is wronged, he is forced to apologize for himself.
The rich do wrong and boast of it, while the poor are wronged and beg forgiveness.
A rich person does wrong, and even adds insults; a poor person suffers wrong, and must add apologies.
A rich person does wrong, and even adds insults; a poor person suffers wrong, and must add apologies.
A rich person does wrong, and even adds insults; a poor person suffers wrong, and must add apologies.
A rich person does wrong, and even adds insults; a poor person suffers wrong, and must add apologies.
A rich man does wrong, and he even adds reproaches; a poor man suffers wrong, and he must add apologies.
A rich man does wrong, and he even adds reproaches; a poor man suffers wrong, and he must add apologies.
A rich man shall do unjustly, and shall gnash, as ready yet to do worse; but a poor man hurt shall be still. [The rich man unrightwisely did, and shall gnash; the poor man forsooth hurt shall hold his peace.]
