Proverbs 12:11-13 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
11 He who tills his land will have plenty of bread,
but he who follows worthless pursuits has no sense.
12 The strong tower of the wicked comes to ruin,
but the root of the righteous stands firm.
13 An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips,
but the righteous escapes from trouble.
