Proverbs 29:24-26 Modern English Version (MEV)
24 Whoever is partner with a thief hates his own soul;
he hears the oath but tells nothing.
25 The fear of man brings a snare,
but whoever puts his trust in the Lord will be safe.
26 Many seek the ruler’s favor,
but every man’s judgment comes from the Lord.
