Contrast the Upright and the Wicked

1 A 1false balance is an abomination to the LORD, But a 2just weight is His delight. 2 When 3pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom. 3 The 4integrity of the upright will guide them, But the 5crookedness of the treacherous will destroy them. 4 6Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, But 7righteousness delivers from death. 5 The 8righteousness of the blameless will smooth his way, But 9the wicked will fall by his own wickedness. 6 The righteousness of the upright will deliver them, But the treacherous will 10be caught by their own greed. 7 When a wicked man dies, his 11expectation will perish, And the 12hope of strong men perishes.
