Proverbs 17:26-28 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

26 It is certainly not good to fine an innocent person
or to beat a noble for his honesty.[a]

27 The one who has knowledge restrains his words,
and one who keeps a cool head[b]
is a person of understanding.

28 Even a fool is considered wise when he keeps silent—
discerning, when he seals his lips.
