Psalm 32:9-10 Good News Translation (GNT)

Don't be stupid like a horse or a mule,
    which must be controlled with a bit and bridle
    to make it submit.”

10 The wicked will have to suffer,
    but those who trust in the Lord
    are protected by his constant love.

Do not be like a horse or a mule, without understanding,

“Don’t be ornery like a horse or mule
