Proverbs 6:30–35 — The New International Version (NIV)

30 People do not despise a thief if he steals

to satisfy his hunger when he is starving.

whoever does so destroys himself.

33 Blows and disgrace are his lot,

and his shame will never be wiped away.

and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge.

35 He will not accept any compensation;

he will refuse a bribe, however great it is.
