Proverbs 17:23-25 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

23 The wicked will accept a bribe from the lap,
    in order to pervert the ways of justice.
24 He who understands sets his face toward wisdom,
    but the eyes of a fool, to the end of the earth.[a]
25 A grief to his father is the child of a fool,
    and bitterness to her who bore him.

23 The wicked accept bribes in secret
    to pervert the course of justice.

    and bitterness to the mother who bore him.
