Proverbs 24:17-27 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
17 Do not rejoice when your enemies fall, and do not let your heart be glad when they stumble, 18 or else the Lord will see it and be displeased, and turn away his anger from them. 19 Do not fret because of evildoers. Do not envy the wicked; 20 for the evil have no future; the lamp of the wicked will go out. 21 My child, fear the Lord and the king, and do not disobey either of them; a 22 for disaster comes from them suddenly, and who knows the ruin that both can bring? 23 These also are sayings of the wise: Partiality in judging is not good. 24 Whoever says to the wicked, "You are innocent," will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations; 25 but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them. 26 One who gives an honest answer gives a kiss on the lips. 27 Prepare your work outside, get everything ready for you in the field; and after that build your house.
