End of 14

Pro 14:30  A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
Pro 14:31  He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.
Pro 14:32  The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.
Pro 14:33  Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.
Pro 14:34  Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
Pro 14:35  The king's favour is toward a wise servant: but his wrath is against him that causeth shame.



Here again we see the poor.  All men are created in the image of God, so to oppress them insults God Himself.  Jesus is to be found in the poor, and He left specific instructions to be kind to them.
