24 One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.
24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
24 One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
24 The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.
24 There is one who scatters, yet increases more; And there is one who withholds more than is right, But it leads to poverty.
24 Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything.
(Read Proverbs 11:24)
A man may grow poor by not paying just debts, not relieving the poor, not allowing needful expenses. Let men be ever so saving of what they have, if God appoints, it comes to nothing.
