The fear of the Lord prolongs life, but the years of the wicked will be short.
The hope of the righteous ends in gladness, but the expectation of the wicked comes to nothing.
The way of the Lord is a stronghold for the upright, but destruction for evildoers.
The righteous will never be removed, but the wicked will not remain in the land.
The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, but the perverse tongue will be cut off.
The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, but the mouth of the wicked what is perverse.
