Daily Wisdom 226: Proverbs 11:8

Proverbs 11:8 (NKJV) — 8 The righteous is delivered from trouble, And it comes to the wicked instead.

A stand-in for the righteous. Though trouble may appear inevitable, the righteous person will ultimately be delivered from it. The righteous person will be replaced in that troubled situation by a wicked person.
