Mishle 17:23-25 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

23 A rasha accepts a shochad (bribe) out of the kheyk (bosom, i.e., secretly) to pervert the orkhot mishpat (paths of justice).

24 Chochmah is before the meiven (discerning one); but the eynayim of a kesil are on the ends of ha’aretz.

25 A ben kesil is a ka’as (grief) to aviv (his father), and bitterness to her that bore him.

Proverbs 17:23-25 New International Version (NIV)

23 The wicked accept bribes in secret
    to pervert the course of justice.

24 A discerning person keeps wisdom in view,
    but a fool’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth.

25 A foolish son brings grief to his father
    and bitterness to the mother who bore him.
