Proverbs 11:5 (NKJV) — 5 The righteousness of the blameless will direct his way aright, But the wicked will fall by his own wickedness.
How destinies are determined. This is a companion verse to Proverbs 11:3. Those who are righteous will be able to make the important decisions of life. The principles by which they live will guide them. In the same manner, wicked persons will make decisions based upon their wickedness, which will ultimately destroy them.
