Proverbs 24:15-16

27

15-16Don't interfere with good people's lives;

don't try to get the best of them.

No matter how many times you trip them up,

God-loyal people don't stay down long;

Soon they're up on their feet,

while the wicked end up flat on their faces.

28

17-18Don't laugh when your enemy falls;

don't crow over his collapse.

God might see, and become very provoked,

and then take pity on his plight.
