Proverbs 17:23-25 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
23 A guilty person takes out a bribe from the pocket,
thus perverting the course of justice.
24 On the countenance of a discerning person is wisdom,
but the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.
25 A foolish son is vexation to his father,
and bitter sorrow to her who bore him.
