Proverbs 14:18-20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

18 The simple have folly as an adornment,
    but the shrewd wear knowledge as a crown.[a]
19 The malicious bow down before the good,
    and the wicked, at the gates of the just.
20 Even by their neighbors the poor are despised,
    but a rich person’s friends are many.
