“…The wicked prowls…” (Pss 12:8, NRSV). Wickedness abounds (1 Sam 24:13, NKJV; Pss 37:21, NLT; Prov 6:12; 17:23; 21:10 & 29:7 & 27, NLT; Pss 11:2 & 37:12-14, NKJV). “…Do NOT put your hand with the wicked…” (Exo 23:1, NKJV); neither enter their path for it “…is like darkness…” (Prov 4:14 & 19, NKJV). They “…prosper…” (Job 21:7, NLT); “…enjoying a life of ease…” (Pss 73:3 & 12, NLT). Their end is destruction (Pss 73:17-18, Isa 3:11, NLT; Job 21:30, NKJV). “The house of the wicked will be overthrown…” (Prov 14:11, NKJV). “…Get away from [their] tents…; …don’t touch anything…, [or] be destroyed for their sins” (Num 16:26; Pss 141:4, NLT). Avoid wickedness (2 Chron 7:14 & Jer 5:26, NKJV). “The Lord is far from the wicked…” (Prov 15:29); “salvation is far from the wicked…” (Pss 119:155, NKJV).
