Proverbs 17:26-28 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
26 To impose a fine on the innocent is not right,
or to flog the noble for their integrity.
27 One who spares words is knowledgeable;
one who is cool in spirit has understanding.
28 Even fools who keep silent are considered wise;
when they close their lips, they are deemed intelligent.
