Proverbs 21:18-20 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

18 The wicked is a ransom for the righteous,
    and the faithless for the upright.
19 It is better to live in a desert land
    than with a contentious and fretful wife.
20 Precious treasure remains[a] in the house of the wise,
    but the fool devours it.
