25  oDo not be afraid of sudden terror

or of pthe ruin1 of the wicked, when it comes,

26  for the Lord will be your confidence

and will qkeep your foot from being caught.


33  aThe Lord's curse is on the house of the wicked,

but he bblesses the dwelling of the righteous.


16  There are dsix things that the Lord hates,

dseven that are an abomination to him:

17  ehaughty eyes, fa lying tongue,

and ghands that shed innocent blood,

18  ha heart that devises wicked plans,

ifeet that make haste to run to evil,

19  ja false witness who kbreathes out lies,

and one who asows discord among brothers.


hThe Lord does not let the righteous go hungry,

ibut he thwarts the craving of the wicked.


Blessings are on the head of the righteous,

but nthe mouth of the wicked conceals violence.1

oThe memory of the righteous is a blessing,

but pthe name of the wicked will rot.


16  The wage of the righteous leads cto life,

the gain of the wicked to sin.


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.


28  sThe hope of the righteous brings joy,

tbut the expectation of the wicked will perish.

29  uThe way of the Lord is a stronghold to the blameless,

but destruction to evildoers.

30  vThe righteous will never be removed,

but wthe wicked will not dwell in the land.


eThe integrity of the upright guides them,

fbut the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.


The righteousness of the blameless ikeeps his way straight,

but the wicked falls by his own wickedness.

hThe righteousness of the upright delivers them,

but the treacherous jare taken captive by their lust.

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.

With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor,

but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.

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

and when the wicked perish there are shouts of gladness.


18  The wicked earns deceptive wages,

but one who xsows righteousness gets a sure reward.

19  Whoever is steadfast in righteousness ywill live,

but zhe who pursues evil will die.

20  Those of acrooked heart are ban abomination to the Lord,

but those of cblameless ways are dhis delight.


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.


30  The fruit of the righteous is wa tree of life,

and whoever xcaptures souls is wise.

31  If ythe righteous is repaid on earth,

how much more the wicked and the sinner!


A good man bobtains favor from the Lord,

but a man of evil devices he condemns.

No one is established by wickedness,

but the root of cthe righteous will never be moved.


hThe thoughts of the righteous are just;

the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.

The words of the wicked ilie in wait for blood,

but jthe mouth of the upright delivers them.

kThe wicked are loverthrown and are no more,

mbut the house of the righteous will stand.

A man is commended according to his good sense,

but one of twisted mind is ndespised.


12  Whoever is wicked covets tthe spoil of evildoers,

but the root of the righteous bears fruit.


21  gNo ill befalls the righteous,

but the wicked are filled with trouble.


28  pIn the path of righteousness is life,

and in its pathway there is no death.


yRighteousness guards him whose zway is blameless,

but sin overthrows the wicked.


dThe light of the righteous rejoices,

but ethe lamp of the wicked will be put out.


21  xDisaster1 pursues sinners,

ybut the righteous are rewarded with good.

22  zA good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children,

but athe sinner's wealth is laid up for the righteous.


25  dThe righteous has enough to satisfy his appetite,

but the belly of the wicked suffers want.


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.


22  Do they not go astray who idevise evil?

Those who devise good meet1 jsteadfast love and faithfulness.


34  Righteousness exalts a nation,

but sin is a reproach to any people.


In the house of the righteous there is much treasure,

but trouble befalls the income of the wicked.


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

but he loves him qwho pursues righteousness.


17  The highway of the upright lturns aside from evil;

whoever guards his way preserves his life.


When wickedness comes, contempt comes also,

and with dishonor comes disgrace.


The righteous who jwalks in his integrity

kblessed are his children after him!


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.


18  uThe wicked is a vransom for the righteous,

and the traitor for the upright.


12  The Righteous One pobserves the house of the wicked;

he throws the wicked down to ruin.


21  Whoever zpursues righteousness and kindness

will find alife, righteousness, and honor.


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.


uThorns and snares are in the way of the crooked;

whoever vguards his soul will keep far from them.


Whoever ysows injustice will reap calamity,

and zthe rod of his fury will fail.


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.


28  cThe wicked flee when no one pursues,

but dthe righteous are bold as a lion.


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.


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.
