16 The wage of the righteous leads to life,
the gain of the wicked to sin.
6 Righteousness guards him whose way is blameless,
but sin overthrows the wicked.
19 Whoever loves transgression loves strife;
he who makes his door high seeks destruction.
4 Haughty eyes and a proud heart,
the lamp of the wicked, are sin.
22 The iniquities of the wicked ensnare him,
and he is held fast in the cords of his sin.
6 An evil man is ensnared in his transgression,
but a righteous man sings and rejoices.
13 Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper,
but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.
9 Who can say, “I have made my heart pure;
I am clean from my sin”?
6 By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.
