Proverbs 29:24-26 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
24 Partners of a thief hate themselves;
they hear the imprecation but do not testify.
25 Fear of others becomes a snare,
but the one who trusts in the Lord is safe.
26 Many curry favor with a ruler,
but it is from the Lord that one receives justice.
