New International Version
When the righteous triumph, there is great elation; but when the wicked rise to power, people go into hiding.
King James Bible
When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.
Darby Bible Translation
When the righteous triumph, there is great glory; but when the wicked rise, men conceal themselves.
World English Bible
When the righteous triumph, there is great glory; but when the wicked rise, men hide themselves.
Young's Literal Translation
In the exulting of the righteous the glory is abundant, And in the rising of the wicked man is apprehensive.
Proverbs 28:12 Parallel

God's Law Immutable
When the righteous prosper, the city rejoices; when the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy.
When the wicked rise to power, people go into hiding; but when the wicked perish, the righteous thrive.
When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.
There is an evil I have seen under the sun, the sort of error that arises from a ruler:
Fools are put in many high positions, while the rich occupy the low ones.
