When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm1 forever.226
As vinegar to the teeth and smoke3 to the eyes, so is a sluggard to those who send him.427
The fear of the LORD adds length to life,5 but the years of the wicked are cut short.628
The prospect of the righteous is joy, but the hopes of the wicked come to nothing.729
The way of the LORD is a refuge for the righteous, but it is the ruin of those who do evil.830
The righteous will never be uprooted, but the wicked will not remain in the land.931
The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom,10 but a perverse tongue11 will be cut out.
The lips of the righteous know what is fitting,12 but the mouth of the wicked only what is perverse.13
