Proverbs 1:27; Proverbs 11:8; Proverbs 12:13; Proverbs 21:23; Proverbs 24:10; Proverbs 25:19 (New American Standard)
When your dread comes like a storm And your calamity comes like a whirlwind, When distress and anguish come upon you.
The righteous is delivered from trouble, But the wicked takes his place.
An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips, But the righteous will escape from trouble.
He who guards his mouth and his tongue, Guards his soul from troubles.
If you are slack in the day of distress, Your strength is limited.
Like a bad tooth and an unsteady foot Is confidence in a faithless man in time of trouble.
