Proverbs 21:9-11 The Voice (VOICE)

It is better to dwell outside on the corner of your roof
    than to live inside your house with a badgering wife.
10 Wicked people delight in doing bad things;
    their neighbors never see even a hint of compassion.
11 A naive person wises up when he sees a mocker punished.
    A wise person becomes even wiser just by being instructed.

Proverbs 21:9-11 New International Version (NIV)

Better to live on a corner of the roof
    than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

10 The wicked crave evil;
    their neighbors get no mercy from them.

11 When a mocker is punished, the simple gain wisdom;
    by paying attention to the wise they get knowledge.
