But the wicked shall
But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.
When the wicked are in authority, sin flourishes, but the godly will live to see their downfall.
The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.
What the wicked dreads will come upon him, but the desire of the righteous will be granted.
The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.
The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
When the wicked increase, transgression increases; But the righteous will see their fall.
A wicked person listens to deceitful lips; a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue.
“Revenge may be wicked, but it’s perfectly natural” -Vanity Fair (2004)
