23 It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.
23 A fool finds pleasure in wicked schemes, but a person of understanding delights in wisdom.
23 Doing wrong is like a joke to a fool, but wisdom is pleasure to a man of understanding.
23 An empty-head thinks mischief is fun, but a mindful person relishes wisdom.
23 To do evil is like sport to a fool, But a man of understanding has wisdom.
23 Doing wrong is fun for a fool, but living wisely brings pleasure to the sensible.
