Today’s Country: Socialist Republic of Vietnam
Better is the poor who walks in his integrity
Than one perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
One who turns away his ear from hearing the law,
Even his prayer is an abomination.
He who covers his sins will not prosper,
But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
He who tills his land will have plenty of bread,
But he who follows frivolity will have poverty enough!
To show partiality is not good,
Because for a piece of bread a man will transgress.
He who trusts in his own heart is a fool,
But whoever walks wisely will be delivered.
He who gives to the poor will not lack,
But he who hides his eyes will have many curses.
from Proverbs 28
