The integrity of the upright will guide (A)them,
But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.
(B)Riches do not profit in the day of wrath,
But (C)righteousness delivers from death.
The righteousness of the blameless will [a]direct his way aright,
But the wicked will fall by his own (D)wickedness.
The righteousness of the upright will deliver them,
But the unfaithful will be caught by their lust.

When a wicked man dies, his expectation will (E)perish,
And the hope of the unjust perishes.
(F)The righteous is delivered from trouble,
And it comes to the wicked instead.
