2 A good person will obtain favor from the LORD, But He will condemn a person who devises evil. 3 A person will not be established by wickedness, But the root of the righteous will not be moved. 4 An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, But she who shames him is like rottenness in his bones. 5 The thoughts of the righteous are just, But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful. 6 The words of the wicked wait in ambush for blood, But the mouth of the upright will rescue them.
