Proverbs 10:6

[ <1 minutes to read ]

Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
– Proverbs 10:6

[W]isdom is much more concerned with outcomes over time than immediate gains or losses. The just is a righteous or lawful man. The perspective is his relation to and dealing with others. Over time, his just dealings return blessings, or benedictions, upon him. He has a reputation or a good name. Conversely, the wicked pour out foolishness from their mouths (Proverbs 15:28). Ultimately violence covers them as their mouths prove to be their own snare and destruction (Proverbs 12:13; 18:6-7).
