New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
5 A fool will no longer be called noble, nor a villain said to be honorable. 5 No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected.
6 For fools speak folly, and their minds plot iniquity: to practice ungodliness, to utter error concerning the Lord, to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied, and to deprive the thirsty of drink. 6 For the fool speaks folly, his mind is busy with evil: He practices ungodliness and spreads error concerning the LORD; the hungry he leaves empty and from the thirsty he withholds water.
7 The villainies of villains are evil; they devise wicked devices to ruin the poor with lying words, even when the plea of the needy is right. 7 The scoundrel's methods are wicked, he makes up evil schemes to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy is just.
8 But those who are noble plan noble things, and by noble things they stand. 8 But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands.
