They are like chaff that the wind blows away. NIV 4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. NCV 5 So the wicked will not escape God's punishment. Sinners will not worship with God's people. NIV 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
