Proverbs 21:10-12 Modern English Version (MEV)

10 The soul of the wicked desires evil;
    his neighbor finds no favor in his eyes.

11 When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise;
    and when the wise is instructed, he receives knowledge.

12 The righteous man wisely considers the house of the wicked,
    but God overthrows the wicked for their wickedness.
