Proverbs 3:27-35Common English Bible (CEB)

27 Don’t withhold good from someone who deserves it,
    when it is in your power to do so.
28 Don’t say to your neighbor, “Go and come back;
    I’ll give it to you tomorrow,” when you have it.
29 Don’t plan to harm your neighbor
    who trusts and lives near you.
30 Don’t accuse anyone without reason,
    when they haven’t harmed you.
31 Don’t envy violent people
    or choose any of their ways.
32 Devious people are detestable to the Lord,
    but the virtuous are his close friends.
33 The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
    but he blesses the home of the righteous.
34 He mocks mockers,
    but he shows favor to the humble.
35 The wise gain respect,
    but fools receive shame.
