The wicked earns deceptive wages,
But he who sows righteousness gets a true reward. 19
He who is steadfast in righteousness will attain to life,
And he who pursues evil will bring about his own death. 20
Those with a crooked heart are an abomination to Yahweh,
But those of a blameless way are His delight. 21
Assuredly, the evil man will not go unpunished,
But the seed of the righteous will escape.
