Proverbs 24:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 24

[a]Do not envy the wicked,
    nor desire to be with them;

Footnotes:

  1. 24:1–22 A new section (24:1–14)—on the fates of the wicked and foolish—begins with a warning not to take the foolish as role models. The same admonition is repeated in 23:17–18 and 24:19–20. In 24:1, the verb means “to be jealous, zealous; to emulate.” The motive stated in the other passages—the wicked have no future—is indirectly stated here.
