Proverbs 21:10-12 The Passion Translation (TPT)

10 The wicked always crave what is evil;
they’ll show no mercy and get no mercy.[a]
11 Senseless people learn their lessons the hard way,
but the wise are teachable.
12 A godly, righteous person[b] has the ability
to bring the light of instruction to the wicked
even though he despises what the wicked do.[c]


  1. Proverbs 21:10 The Hebrew is “They show no mercy,” while the Septuagint reads “They’ll receive no mercy.” This translation has chosen to merge both concepts.
  2. Proverbs 21:12 The Hebrew is “a righteous one,” which can also speak of God, “the Righteous One.”
  3. Proverbs 21:12 As translated from the Septuagint. There are many examples of this in the Bible: Daniel in Babylon, Joseph in Egypt, and the follower of Jesus today who is living among unbelievers.
