Proverbs 29:24-26 The Passion Translation (TPT)
24 You are your own worst enemy when you partner with a thief,
for a curse of guilt will come upon you
when you fail to report a crime.
25 Fear and intimidation is a trap that holds you back.
But when you place your confidence in the Lord,
you will be seated in the high place.
26 Everyone curries favor with leaders.
But God is the judge, and justice comes from him.
