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.
Proverbs 13:21


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.
