Proverbs 21:9-11 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
9 It is better to live in a corner of the housetop
than in a house shared with a contentious wife.
10 The souls of the wicked desire evil;
their neighbours find no mercy in their eyes.
11 When a scoffer is punished, the simple become wiser;
when the wise are instructed, they increase in knowledge.

by paying attention to the wise they get knowledge.
