Daily Bible Verse - Proverbs 13:21 - Misfortune pursues the sinner ...

NIV Misfortune pursues the sinner,
but prosperity is the reward of the righteous.
KJV Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed.
NASB Adversity pursues sinners,
But the righteous will be rewarded with prosperity.

Commentary

This is a basic theme/general principle throughout Proverbs and is illustrated throughout the OT, which establishes that righteousness brings divine blessing and evil brings divine cursing.

Galatians 6:7
7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

It is truly amazing how often we forget that God is God and we are not! We can't continue to break God's laws with out the consequences.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
