Proverbs 24:15
Context
Don'T Be Envious of Evil Men

1Be not you envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them. 2For their heart studies destruction, and their lips talk of mischief. 3Through wisdom is an house built; and by understanding it is established: 4And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. 5A wise man is strong; yes, a man of knowledge increases strength. 6For by wise counsel you shall make your war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety. 7Wisdom is too high for a fool: he opens not his mouth in the gate. 8He that devises to do evil shall be called a mischievous person. 9The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men. 10If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. 11If you forbear to deliver them that are drawn to death, and those that are ready to be slain; 12If you say, Behold, we knew it not; does not he that ponders the heart consider it? and he that keeps your soul, does not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works? 13My son, eat you honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to your taste: 14So shall the knowledge of wisdom be to your soul: when you have found it, then there shall be a reward, and your expectation shall not be cut off. 15Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place: 16For a just man falls seven times, and rises up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief. 17Rejoice not when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles: 18Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him. 19Fret not yourself because of evil men, neither be you envious at the wicked: 20For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out. 21My son, fear you the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change: 22For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knows the ruin of them both?
