The one who oppresses the poor does so for his own gain;
the one who gives to the rich surely will come to poverty. Bible see other translations

“gives to the rich.” In this context, the one who gives to the rich is buying influence and favor. Thus, what the person is giving is actually a kind of bribe, even if it is legally done.
