Proverbs 21:9-11 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

It is better to live in a corner on the roof[a]
    than inside the house with a quarreling wife.

10 An evil person only wants to harm others.
    His neighbor will get no mercy from him.

11 Punish a person who makes fun of wisdom, and he will become wise.
    But just teach a wise person, and he will get knowledge.

Footnotes:

  1. 21:9 roof In Bible times houses were built with flat roofs. The roof was used for drying things such as flax and fruit. And it was used as an extra room, as a place for worship and as a place to sleep in the summer.
