Proverbs 29:24-26 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised (NRSVA)
24 To be a partner of a thief is to hate one’s own life;
one hears the victim’s curse, but discloses nothing.
25 The fear of others lays a snare,
but one who trusts in the Lord is secure.
26 Many seek the favour of a ruler,
but it is from the Lord that one gets justice.
