Proverbs 21:8; Proverbs 21:12; Proverbs 21:15; Proverbs 21:18; Proverbs 21:21; Proverbs 21:29 (New International Version)
The way of the guilty is devious, but the conduct of the innocent is upright.
The Righteous One takes note of the house of the wicked and brings the wicked to ruin.
When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.
The wicked become a ransom for the righteous, and the unfaithful for the upright.
He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.
A wicked man puts up a bold front, but an upright man gives thought to his ways.
