Psalm 7:16; Proverbs 11:5–6; Daniel 6:24

16  His nmischief returns upon his own head,

and on his own skull his violence descends.


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.


24 And the king commanded, and cthose men who had maliciously accused Daniel were brought and cast into the den of lionsthey, their children, and their wives. And before they reached the bottom of the den, the lions overpowered them and broke all their bones in pieces.
