31 If you mistreat the poor,
    you insult your Creator;
    if you are kind to them,
    you show him respect.
32 In times of trouble
    the wicked are destroyed,
    but even at death
    the innocent have faith.[a]

33 Wisdom is found in the minds
of people with good sense,
    but fools don’t know it.[b]
