14  aDo not enter the path of the wicked,

and do not walk in the way of the evil.

19  dThe evil bow down before the good,

the wicked at the gates of the righteous.

26  tThe thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord,

but ugracious words are pure.

11  An evil man seeks only rebellion,

and ba cruel messenger will be sent against him.

24  Be not uenvious of evil men,

nor desire to be vwith them,

for their hearts wdevise violence,

and their lips xtalk of trouble.

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.

Evil men ido not understand justice,

but those who seek the Lord junderstand it completely.

An evil man is kensnared in his transgression,

but a righteous man lsings and rejoices.
