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

24 What the wicked fears shall come upon him; but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.

25 As the storm passes, so the wicked is no more; but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.

26 Like vinegar to the teeth, and like smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to those who send him.

27 The fear of Jehovah prolongs days; but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.

28 The hope of the righteous is gladness; but the hope of the wicked shall perish.

29 The way of Jehovah is strength to the upright; but ruin is to the workers of iniquity.

30 The righteous shall never be moved; and the wicked shall not live in the earth.

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

32 The lips of the righteous know what is pleasing; but the mouth of the wicked what is contrary.
