Sirach 19:22
The knowledge of wickedness isn’t wisdom, and there is no prudence in the advice that sinners give.
There is an exquisite subtilty, and the same is unjust.
You may know everything there is to know about wickedness, but that does not make you wise. It is not sensible to follow the advice of sinners.
The knowledge of wickedness is not wisdom, nor is there prudence in the counsel of sinners.
The knowledge of wickedness is not wisdom, nor is there prudence in the counsel of sinners.
The knowledge of wickedness is not wisdom, nor is there prudence in the counsel of sinners.
The knowledge of wickedness is not wisdom, nor is there prudence in the counsel of sinners.
The knowledge of wickedness is not wisdom, nor is there prudence in the counsel of sinners.
But the knowledge of wickedness is not wisdom, nor is there prudence where sinners take counsel.
But the knowledge of wickedness is not wisdom, nor is there prudence where sinners take counsel.
And the teaching of wickedness is not wisdom; and the prudence of sins is not good thought. [And wisdom is not the discipline of shrewdness (or of depravity); and good thinking is not the prudence of sins.]
