21  For the upright vwill inhabit the land,

and those with integrity will remain in it,


32  for ythe devious person is an abomination to the Lord,

but the upright are zin his confidence.


eThe integrity of the upright guides them,

fbut the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.


hThe righteousness of the upright delivers them,

but the treacherous jare taken captive by their lust.


11  By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted,

but oby the mouth of the wicked pit is overthrown.


qFools mock at the guilt offering,

but the upright enjoy acceptance.1


11  sThe house of the wicked will be destroyed,

but the tent of the upright will flourish.


oThe sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,

but pthe prayer of the upright is acceptable to him.


19  The way of ha sluggard is like a hedge of ithorns,

but the path of the upright is ja level highway.


17  The highway of the upright lturns aside from evil;

whoever guards his way preserves his life.


18  uThe wicked is a vransom for the righteous,

and the traitor for the upright.


29  A wicked man puts on a bold face,

but the upright lgives thought to1 his ways.


10  Bloodthirsty men qhate one who is blameless

and seek the life of the upright.1


27  lAn unjust man is an abomination to the righteous,

but one whose way is straight is an abomination to the wicked.
