Proverbs 24:15-17 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

15 Do not lie in wait like an outlaw against the home of the righteous;
    do not do violence to his dwelling place.
16 For seven times the righteous will fall, but he will rise,
    but the wicked will be overthrown by calamity.
17 While your enemies are falling, do not rejoice;
    when he trips himself, may your heart[a] not be glad

Saying 27

15 Do not lurk like a thief near the house of the righteous,
    do not plunder their dwelling place;
16 for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again,
    but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.

17 Do not gloat when your enemy falls;
    when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice,
