Righteousness guards the way of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.
1 Corinthians 3:3
for you are still fleshly. For insofar as there is jealousy, strife, and factions among you, aren't you fleshly, and don't you walk in the ways of men?
Yahweh has made himself known. He has executed judgment. The wicked is snared by the work of his own hands. Meditation. Selah.
An evil man is trapped by sinfulness of lips, but the righteous shall come out of trouble.
An evil man is snared by his sin, but the righteous can sing and be glad.
Let the wicked fall together into their own nets, while I pass by. A contemplation by David, when he was in the cave. A Prayer.
No mischief shall happen to the righteous, but the wicked shall be filled with evil.
The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare him. The cords of his sin hold him firmly.
"There is no peace," says my God, "for the wicked."
This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their hearts; who having become callous gave themselves up to lust, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
The eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked. They sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
The wise will inherit glory, but shame will be the promotion of fools.
A righteous man hates lies, but a wicked man brings shame and disgrace.
Therefore, as sin entered into the world through one man, and death through sin; and so death passed to all men, because all sinned.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am fleshly, sold under sin.
