Proverbs 15:27-29 Common English Bible (CEB)

27 Those who acquire things unjustly gain trouble for their house,
    but those who hate bribes will live.
28 The righteous heart reflects before answering,
    but the wicked mouth blurts out evil.
29 The Lord is far from the wicked,
    but he listens to the prayers of the righteous.
