The powerful grow poor and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. 12 4 Come, children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. 13 Who among you loves life, takes delight in prosperous days? 14 Keep your tongue from evil, your lips from speaking lies. 15 Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. 16 The LORD has eyes for the just and ears for their cry.
