Proverbs 15:27-29 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

27 The greedy tear down their own house,
    but those who hate bribes will live.[a]
28 The heart of the just ponders a response,
    but the mouth of the wicked spews evil.
29 The Lord is far from the wicked,
    but hears the prayer of the just.


  1. 15:27 The same lesson as the opening scene of Proverbs (1:8–19): one cannot build a house by unjust gain. Injustice will come back upon a house so built.
