22  but the wicked will be wcut off from the land,

and the treacherous will be xrooted out of it.


14  aDo not enter the path of the wicked,

and do not walk in the way of the evil.


19  hThe way of the wicked is like deep idarkness;

they do not know over what they jstumble.


22  The ainiquities of the wicked bensnare him,

and he is held fast in the cords of his sin.


12  vA worthless person, a wicked man,

goes about with wcrooked speech,


Blessings are on the head of the righteous,

but nthe mouth of the wicked conceals violence.1


11  uThe mouth of the righteous is va fountain of life,

but the mouth of the wicked nconceals violence.


16  The wage of the righteous leads cto life,

the gain of the wicked to sin.


20  The tongue of the righteous is gchoice silver;

the heart of the wicked is of little worth.


24  lWhat the wicked dreads mwill come upon him,

but nthe desire of the righteous will be granted.


25  When othe tempest passes, the wicked is no more,

but pthe righteous is established forever.


27  qThe fear of the Lord prolongs life,

rbut the years of the wicked will be short.


28  sThe hope of the righteous brings joy,

tbut the expectation of the wicked will perish.


30  vThe righteous will never be removed,

but wthe wicked will not dwell in the land.


The righteousness of the blameless ikeeps his way straight,

but the wicked falls by his own wickedness.


When the wicked dies, his khope will perish,

and lthe expectation of wealth1 perishes too.


mThe righteous is delivered from trouble,

and the wicked walks into it instead.


10  nWhen it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices,

and when the wicked perish there are shouts of gladness.


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

but oby the mouth of the wicked pit is overthrown.


18  The wicked earns deceptive wages,

but one who xsows righteousness gets a sure reward.


21  eBe assured, fan evil person will not go unpunished,

but gthe offspring of the righteous will be delivered.


23  The desire of the righteous ends only in good,

ithe expectation of the wicked in wrath.


31  If ythe righteous is repaid on earth,

how much more the wicked and the sinner!


11  sThe house of the wicked will be destroyed,

but the tent of the upright will flourish.


19  dThe evil bow down before the good,

the wicked at the gates of the righteous.


32  zThe wicked is overthrown through his evildoing,

but athe righteous finds refuge in his death.


gThe eyes of the Lord are in every place,

keeping watch on the evil and the good.


In the house of the righteous there is much treasure,

but trouble befalls the income of the wicked.


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

but pthe prayer of the upright is acceptable to him.


The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,

but he loves him qwho pursues righteousness.


28  The heart of the righteous yponders how to answer,

but zthe mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.


29  The Lord is afar from the wicked,

but he bhears the prayer of the righteous.


pThe Lord has made everything for its purpose,

even qthe wicked for the day of trouble.


An evildoer listens to wicked lips,

and a liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue.


23  The wicked accepts qa bribe in secret1

to rpervert the ways of justice.


When wickedness comes, contempt comes also,

and with dishonor comes disgrace.


28  A worthless witness mocks at justice,

and the mouth of the wicked wdevours iniquity.


cHaughty eyes and a proud heart,

dthe lamp1 of the wicked, are sin.


The violence of the wicked will lsweep them away,

because they refuse to do what is just.


10  The soul of the wicked desires evil;

his neighbor finds no mercy in his eyes.


12  The Righteous One pobserves the house of the wicked;

he throws the wicked down to ruin.


18  uThe wicked is a vransom for the righteous,

and the traitor for the upright.


27  iThe sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination;

how much more jwhen he brings it with evil intent.


29  A wicked man puts on a bold face,

but the upright lgives thought to1 his ways.


15  rLie not in wait as a wicked man against the dwelling of the righteous;

do no violence to his home;


16  sfor the righteous falls tseven times and rises again,

but uthe wicked stumble in times of calamity.


19  wFret not yourself because of evildoers,

and be not xenvious of the wicked,

20  for the evil man has no qfuture;

ythe lamp of the wicked will be put out.


Take away qthe dross from the silver,

and rthe smith has material for a vessel;

take away sthe wicked from the presence of the king,

and his tthrone will be established in righteousness.


28  cThe wicked flee when no one pursues,

but dthe righteous are bold as a lion.


Those who forsake the law gpraise the wicked,

but those who keep the law hstrive against them.


12  When vthe righteous triumph, there is great glory,

but when wthe wicked rise, people hide themselves.


28  When xthe wicked rise, ypeople hide themselves,

but when they perish, the righteous increase.


When cthe righteous increase, the people rejoice,

but when dthe wicked rule, the people groan.


A righteous man mknows the rights of the poor;

a wicked man does not nunderstand such knowledge.


16  When the wicked increase, transgression increases,

but xthe righteous will look upon their downfall.


27  lAn unjust man is an abomination to the righteous,

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