Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense, but a man of understanding remains silent. – Proverbs 11:12 ESV
The desire of the righteous ends only in good; the expectation of the wicked in wrath.
One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.
The people curse him who holds back grain, but a blessing is on the head of him who sells it.
Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor, but evil comes to him who searches for it.
Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.
If the righteous is repaid on earth, how much more the wicked and the sinner! – Proverbs 11:23-28, 31 ESV
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit. My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. – James 5:13-20 ESV
