29 The Lord doesn’t respond to the wicked,
    but he’s moved to answer the prayers of the righteous.
30 Eyes that focus on what is beautiful bring joy to the heart,[a]
    and hearing a good report
    refreshes and strengthens the inner being.[b]
31 Accepting constructive criticism
    opens your heart to the path of life,
    making you right at home among the wise.
