The way of the LORD is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.
– Proverbs 10:29
The way of the Lord is contrasted between the upright and the workers of iniquity. Some see the Lord’s overall providential governance in the way of the Lord, but as way is frequently put for course of life in Proverbs, it is more fitting to see it as the way one should go. The wisdom we should walk by is the wisdom we shall be judged by. It is safety or security to the upright, but the wicked falter and fail therein (Hosea 14:9).
