Proverbs 10:24-32 - Righteous People Contrasted To Wicked People

24 The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him, but God shall grant the desire of the righteous.

25 When the whirlwind passes, the wicked is no more, but the righteous is founded for ever.

26 As vinegar to the teeth and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to those that send him.

27 The fear of the LORD shall prolong days, but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.

28 The hope of the righteous is joy, but the hope of the wicked shall perish.

29 The way of the LORD is strength to the perfect, but it is terror to the workers of iniquity.

30 The righteous eternally shall never be removed, but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.

31 The mouth of the just shall bring forth wisdom, but the perverse tongue shall be cut out.

32 The lips of the righteous shall know the will of God, but the mouth of the wicked speaks perversion.
