27 Whoever seeks good finds favor, but evil comes to one who searches for it.
27 He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.
27 Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor,Or acceptance but evil comes to him who searches for it.
27 The one who seeks good finds delight; the student of evil becomes evil.
27 He who earnestly seeks good finds favor, But trouble will come to him who seeks evil.
27 If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you!
(Read Proverbs 11:27)
Seeking mischief is here set against seeking good; for those that are not doing good are doing hurt, even to themselves.
