Proverbs 12:11-13 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

11 Those who till their land will have plenty of food,
    but those who follow worthless pursuits have no sense.

    but the root of the righteous bears fruit.
13 The evil are ensnared by the transgression of their lips,
    but the righteous escape from trouble.
