Proverbs 14:31-33 Modern English Version (MEV)

31 He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker,
    but he who honors Him has mercy on the poor.

32 The wicked is driven away in his wickedness,
    but the righteous has hope in his death.

33 Wisdom rests in the heart of him who has understanding,
    but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.

31 Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker,
    but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.

    and even among fools she lets herself be known.[a]
