Proverbs 11:1-3 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Folly of Wickedness

11 Dishonest[a] scales are an abomination to the Lord,
But a [b]just weight is His delight.

When pride comes, then comes shame;
But with the humble is wisdom.

The integrity of the upright will guide them,
But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.
