Proverbs 24:17 In-Context

15 Do not lurk like a thief near the house of the righteous, do not plunder their dwelling place;
16 for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.
17 Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice,
18 or the LORD will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from them.
19 Do not fret because of evildoers or be envious of the wicked,
