Proverbs 2:20–22 (KJV 1900) — 20 That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, And keep the paths of the righteous. 21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, And the perfect shall remain in it. 22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, And the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
Only through wisdom and knowledge (see Proverbs 2:10) can a person walk with good people and keep to the right paths. Though circumstances may temporarily indicate otherwise, we may be certain that, in the final analysis, the upright will receive the promises of God and the wicked will be rejected by Him.
