Proverbs 18:3-5 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)
3 A wicked man, when he cometh into (the) depth of sins, despiseth wholesome lore, (or discipline,) and commandment; but scandal and shame followeth him.
4 Deep water is the words of the mouth of a man; and a strand floating over is the well of wisdom. (Words from a person’s mouth can be like deep water/can be as deep as the water; and the well of wisdom is like a stream flowing over.)
5 It is not good to take the person of a wicked man in doom, that thou bow away from the truth of doom. (It is not good to favour a wicked person, so that thou turn away from the truth in judgement.)
Proverbs 18:3-5 New International Version (NIV)
3 When wickedness comes, so does contempt,
4 The words of the mouth are deep waters,
5 It is not good to be partial to the wicked
