Doing wickedness is like sport to a fool, And so is
wisdom to a person of understanding.
What the wicked fears will come upon him, But the desire of the righteous will be granted.
When the whirlwind passes, the wicked is no more, But the righteous has
an everlasting foundation.
Like vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, So is the lazy one to those who send him.
The fear of the LORD prolongs life, But the years of the wicked will be shortened.
The hope of the righteous is gladness, But the expectation of the wicked perishes.
