Proverbs 15:27-29 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house: but he that hateth bribes shall live. By mercy and faith sins are purged away: and by the fear of the Lord every one declineth from evil.

28 The mind of the just studieth obedience: the mouth of the wicked over floweth with evils.

29 The Lord is far from the wicked: and he will hear the prayers of the just.

Proverbs 15:27-29 New International Version (NIV)

27 The greedy bring ruin to their households,
    but the one who hates bribes will live.

28 The heart of the righteous weighs its answers,
    but the mouth of the wicked gushes evil.

29 The Lord is far from the wicked,
    but he hears the prayer of the righteous.
