16 A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great.
16 A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
16 A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before the great.

16 Giving a gift can open doors; it gives access to important people!
(Read Proverbs 18:16)
Blessed be the Lord, who makes us welcome to come to his throne, without money and without price. May his gifts make room for him in our souls.
