A good man obtaineth favor of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.
– Proverbs 12:2
The good man is contrasted with the man of wicked devices. The word for wicked devices means a plan or scheme. God often subjects such to their own plans (Proverbs 1:31). The word for good is good in the greatest sense, so all kinds of good. The word for favor refers to delight and goodwill. Elsewhere, the one who finds wisdom receives the goodwill of the Lord (Proverbs 8:35).
