Proverbs 29:6-8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The sin of the wicked is a trap,
    but the just run along joyfully.
The just care for the cause of the poor;
    the wicked do not understand such care.[a]
Scoffers enflame the city,
    but the wise calm the fury.


  1. 29:7 As in 12:10 (on care for animals), the righteous care for those who are without a voice and often treated like animals. Colon B has a double meaning: the wicked have no such knowledge (care for the poor) and they have no knowledge (wisdom), for they are fools.
