New International Version

1A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold. 2Rich and poor have this in common: The LORD is the Maker of them all. 8He who sows wickedness reaps trouble, and the rod of his fury will be destroyed. 9A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor. 22Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, 23for the LORD will take up their case and will plunder those who plunder them.
Proverbs 22:1-2,8-9,22-23 (NIV)
