11 He who works his land will have plenty of food,
    but he who follows worthless things lacks sense.[a]
12 The wicked covets the proceeds of evil,
    but the root of the righteous bears fruit.[b]
13 By the transgression of lips, evil is ensnared,
    but the righteous escapes from trouble.

Proverbs 12:11-13 New International Version (NIV)

11 Those who work their land will have abundant food,
    but those who chase fantasies have no sense.

12 The wicked desire the stronghold of evildoers,
    but the root of the righteous endures.

13 Evildoers are trapped by their sinful talk,
    and so the innocent escape trouble.
