Proverbs 3:27-35, Afflicted




27Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,

When it is in your power to do it.

28Do not say to your neighbor, “Go, and come back,

And tomorrow I will give it,”

When you have it with you.

29Do not devise harm against your neighbor,

While he lives securely beside you.

30Do not contend with a man without cause,

If he has done you no harm.

31Do not envy a man of violence

And do not choose any of his ways.

32For the devious are an abomination to the Lord;

But He is intimate with the upright.

33The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked,

But He blesses the dwelling of the righteous.

34Though He scoffs at the scoffers,

Yet He gives grace to the afflicted.

35The wise will inherit honor,

But fools display dishonor.

Action: What does God give to the afflicted? What does that mean?
