3 The integrity of the righteous guides them, but the hypocrisy of the treacherous destroys them.
5 The righteousness of the innocent creates a level path, but the wicked fall by their wickedness.
6 The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the treacherous are trapped by their evil desires.
7 When a wicked person dies, his hope vanishes; and what he expected from his scheming comes to nothing.
9 By what he says, the godless person can destroy his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous escape.
10 The city rejoices when the righteous prosper, and when the wicked perish there is jubilation.
11 Through the blessing of the righteous a city is built up, but what the wicked say tears it down.
15 Securing a loan for a stranger will bring suffering, but by refusing to do so, one remains safe.
20 Devious minds are abhorrent to the LORD, but those whose ways are innocent are his delight.
21 Be sure of this: the wicked will not go unpunished, but the descendants of the righteous will go free.
24 Those who give freely gain even more; others hold back what they owe, becoming even poorer.
27 The person seeking good will find favor, but anyone who searches for evil it will find him!
28 The person who trusts in his wealth will fall, but the righteous will flourish like green leaves.
29 Whoever troubles his household will inherit the wind, and the fool will be a servant to the wise.
