31 Anyone who crushes poor people makes fun of their Maker.
    But anyone who is kind to those in need honors God.

32 When trouble comes, sinners are brought down.
    But godly people seek safety in God even as they die.

33 Wisdom rests in the hearts of those who understand what is right.
    And even among foolish people she makes herself known.
