Proverbs 29:6-8 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

To an evil person sin is bait in a trap,
    but a righteous person runs away from it[a] and is glad.
A righteous person knows the just cause of the poor.
A wicked person does not understand this.
Mockers create an uproar in a city,
    but wise people turn away anger.
