New King James Version
21 He who begets a scoffer does so to his sorrow,
And the father of a fool has no joy.
23 A wicked man accepts a bribe [b]behind the back
To pervert the ways of justice.
24 (B)Wisdom is in the sight of him who has understanding,
But the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.
25 A (C)foolish son is a grief to his father,
And bitterness to her who bore him.
