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

but he bblesses the dwelling of the righteous.

34  Toward the cscorners he dis scornful,

ebut to the humble he gives favor.1

35  The wise will inherit honor,

but fools get2 disgrace.


hThe Lord does not let the righteous go hungry,

ibut he thwarts the craving of the wicked.


22  iThe blessing of the Lord makes rich,

and he adds no sorrow with it.1


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.


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.


27  Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor,1

but evil comes to rhim who searches for it.


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.


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.


14  The backslider in heart will be xfilled with the fruit of his ways,

and ya good man will be filled with the fruit of his ways.


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.


When a man's ways please the Lord,

whe makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.


13  If anyone ereturns evil for good,

fevil will not depart from his house.


When wickedness comes, contempt comes also,

and with dishonor comes disgrace.


When a man's folly dbrings his way to ruin,

his heart erages against the Lord.


19  A man of great wrath will pay the penalty,

for if you deliver him, you will only have to do it again.


29  Condemnation is ready for rscoffers,

and xbeating for the backs of fools.


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.


12  The Righteous One pobserves the house of the wicked;

he throws the wicked down to ruin.


16  One who wanders from the way of good sense

twill rest in the assembly of the dead.


18  uThe wicked is a vransom for the righteous,

and the traitor for the upright.


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.


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.


26  Like snow in summer or urain in harvest,

so vhonor is wnot fitting for a fool.


zA whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey,

and aa rod for the back of fools.


27  xWhoever digs a pit will fall into it,

and a stone will come back on him who starts it rolling.


16  When the wicked increase, transgression increases,

but xthe righteous will look upon their downfall.
