Proverbs 22:7-9 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

The rich over the poor ruleth, And a servant [is] the borrower to the lender.

Whoso is sowing perverseness reapeth sorrow, And the rod of his anger weareth out.

The good of eye -- he is blessed, For he hath given of his bread to the poor.

Proverbs 22:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

The rich rule over the poor,
    and the borrower is slave to the lender.

Whoever sows injustice reaps calamity,
    and the rod they wield in fury will be broken.

The generous will themselves be blessed,
    for they share their food with the poor.
