11 (A)Whoever works his land (B)will have plenty of bread,
    (C)but he who follows (D)worthless pursuits lacks sense.
12 Whoever is wicked covets (E)the spoil of evildoers,
    but the root of the righteous bears fruit.
13 An evil man is ensnared (F)by the transgression of his lips,[a]
    (G)but the righteous escapes from trouble.
