6 Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
6 Better the poor whose walk is blameless than the rich whose ways are perverse.
6 Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than a rich man who is crooked in his ways.
6 It's better to be poor and direct than rich and crooked.
6 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity Than one perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
6 Better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and rich.
