GOD’S WORD Translation
22 It is the Lord’s blessing that makes a person rich,
and hard work adds nothing to it.
23 Like the laughter of a fool when he carries out an evil plan,
so is wisdom to a person who has understanding.
Righteous People Contrasted to Wicked People
24 That which wicked people dread happens to them,
but the Lord grants the desire of righteous people.
