The LORD detests dishonest scales,
but delights in an accurate weight.
When pride comes, so does shame,
but wisdom brings humility.
Integrity guides the virtuous,
but dishonesty ruins the treacherous.
Riches don’t help in the day of wrath,
but righteousness rescues from death.
The righteousness of the innocent makes their path straight,
but the wicked fall in their wickedness.
