Proverbs 17:3-5 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

A crucible for silver, and a smelter for gold,
and the Lord is the tester of hearts.

A wicked person listens to malicious talk;[a]
a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue.

The one who mocks the poor insults his Maker,
and one who rejoices over calamity
will not go unpunished.
