  • Proverbs 21:11-22 (ESV)11 When a scoffer is punished, the simple becomes wise;

    when a wise man is instructed, he gains knowledge.

    12 The Righteous One observes the house of the wicked;

    he throws the wicked down to ruin.

    13 Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor

    will himself call out and not be answered.

    14 A gift in secret averts anger,

    and a concealed bribe, strong wrath.

    15 When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous

    but terror to evildoers.

    16 One who wanders from the way of good sense

    will rest in the assembly of the dead.

    17 Whoever loves pleasure will be a poor man;

    he who loves wine and oil will not be rich.

    18 The wicked is a ransom for the righteous,

    and the traitor for the upright.

    19 It is better to live in a desert land

    than with a quarrelsome and fretful woman.

    20 Precious treasure and oil are in a wise man’s dwelling,

    but a foolish man devours it.

    21 Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness

    will find life, righteousness, and honor.

    22 A wise man scales the city of the mighty

    and brings down the stronghold in which they trust.
