Proverbs 21:9-11 The Passion Translation (TPT)

It’s better to live all alone in a rickety shack
than to share a castle with a crabby spouse![a]
10 The wicked always crave what is evil;
they’ll show no mercy and get no mercy.[b]
11 Senseless people learn their lessons the hard way,
but the wise are teachable.

Footnotes:

  1. Proverbs 21:9 The Septuagint reads “It’s better to live in the corner of an attic than in a large home plastered with unrighteousness.”
  2. Proverbs 21:10 The Hebrew is “They show no mercy,” while the Septuagint reads “They’ll receive no mercy.” This translation has chosen to merge both concepts.
