Mishle 21:10-12 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

10 The nefesh of the rashah desireth rah; his re’a findeth no mercy in his eynayim.

11 When the scoffer is punished, the simple is made wise, and when insight is disclosed to the chacham, he receiveth da’as.

12 The tzaddik (righteous one) wisely considereth the bais of the rashah, and hurleth the resha’im to rah.

Proverbs 21:10-12 New International Version (NIV)

10 The wicked crave evil;
    their neighbors get no mercy from them.

11 When a mocker is punished, the simple gain wisdom;
    by paying attention to the wise they get knowledge.

12 The Righteous One[a] takes note of the house of the wicked
    and brings the wicked to ruin.
