Psalm 15:2-5 and Proverbs 3:27-34
2 He who walks without blemish and who works justice.
3 He who speaks the truth in his heart, who has not acted deceitfully with his tongue, and has not done evil to his neighbor, and has not taken up a reproach against his neighbors.
4 In his sight, the malicious one has been reduced to nothing, but he glorifies those who fear the Lord. He who swears to his neighbor and does not deceive.
5 He who has not given his money in usury, nor accepted bribes against the innocent. He who does these things will be undisturbed for eternity.
27 Do not prevent him who is able from doing good. When you are able, do good yourself too.
28 Do not say to your friend: "Go away, and then return. Tomorrow I will give to you." When you are able to do so, give in the present.
29 Do not undertake evil against your friend, even though he has trust in you.
30 Do not contend against a man without cause, even though he has done no evil to you.
31 Do not rival an unjust man, and do not imitate his ways.
32 For everyone who ridicules is an abomination to the Lord, and his communication is for the simple.
33 Destitution in the house of the impious is from the Lord. But the habitations of the just shall be blessed.
34 He will ridicule those who ridicule, but he will bestow grace upon the mild.
