Proverbs 22:8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Those who sow iniquity reap calamity,
    and the rod used in anger will fail.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 22:8 Agricultural metaphors express the failure of malicious actions. In the first line, bad actions are seeds yielding trouble. In the second line, “the rod” is a flail used to beat grains as in Is 28:27.
