Proverbs 21:9-11 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop
    than in a mansion with a quarrelsome woman.[a]
10 The soul of the wicked desires evil;
    their neighbor finds no pity in their eyes.
11 When scoffers are punished the naive become wise;
    when the wise succeed, they gain knowledge.

Footnotes:

  1. 21:9 In Proverbs, two great obstacles to a happy household are foolish children and quarrelsome spouses. The nagging wife is also mentioned in 19:13 and 27:15; 25:24 is a duplicate.
