Proverbs 17:23-25 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
23 The wicked accept a concealed bribe
to pervert the ways of justice.
24 The discerning person looks to wisdom,
but the eyes of a fool to the ends of the earth.
25 Foolish children are a grief to their father
and bitterness to her who bore them.
