Proverbs 21:10-12 Expanded Bible (EXB)

10 Evil people ·only want [desire] to harm others.
Their neighbors get no ·mercy [favor; grace] from them.

11 If you punish ·those who make fun of wisdom [mockers], a ·foolish [immature; naive; simpleminded] person may gain some wisdom.
But if you teach the wise, they will get knowledge.

12 The righteous [C either God or righteous people] watch the house of the wicked
and ·bring ruin on every evil person [turn the wicked toward trouble].
