33 The curse of the LORD is on the house of the wicked, but He blesses the home of the just.
Prov. 8:18-21, 32-35
18 Riches and honor are with me, Enduring riches and righteousness. 19 My fruit is better than gold, yes, than fine gold, and my revenue than choice silver. 20 I traverse the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice, 21 That I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, That I may fill their treasuries.
32 "Now therefore, listen to me, my children, For blessed are those who keep my ways. 33 Hear instruction and be wise, and do not disdain it. 34 Blessed is the man who listens to me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors. 35 For whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from the LORD;
11 For by me your days will be multiplied, and years of life will be added to you.
6 Blessings are on the head of the righteous, but violence covers the mouth of the wicked. The memory of the righteous is blessed, but the name of the wicked will rot.
22 The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.
30 The righteous will never be removed, but the wicked will not inhabit the earth.
26 The people will curse him who withholds grain, but blessing will be on the head of him who sells it.
2 A good man obtains favor from the LORD, but a man of wicked intentions He will condemn.
15 All the days of the afflicted are evil, but he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.
22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the LORD.
14 Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the LORD.
7 The righteous man walks in his integrity; His children are blessed after him.
24 He who says to the wicked, "You are righteous," Him the people will curse; Nations will abhor him. 25 but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.
2 Like a flitting sparrow, like a flying swallow, So a curse without cause shall not alight.
14 He who blesses his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, It will be counted a curse to him.
20 A faithful man will abound with blessings, but he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished.
27 He who gives to the poor will not lack, but he who hides his eyes will have many curses.
10 Do not malign a servant to his master, Lest he curse you, and you be found guilty. 11 There is a generation that curses its father, and does not bless its mother.
