New International Version - UK
16 A tyrannical ruler practises extortion,
but one who hates ill-gotten gain will enjoy a long reign.
17 Anyone tormented by the guilt of murder
will seek refuge in the grave;
let no one hold them back.
18 The one whose way of life is blameless is kept safe,
but the one whose ways are perverse will fall into the pit.[a]
- Proverbs 28:18 Syriac (see Septuagint); Hebrew into one
