Proverbs 11:17-19 The Passion Translation (TPT)
17 A man of kindness attracts favor,
while a cruel man attracts nothing but trouble.
18 Evil people may get a short-term gain,
but to sow seeds of righteousness
will bring a true and lasting reward.
19 A son of righteousness experiences the abundant life,
but the one who pursues evil hurries to his own death.
