Wickedness Of The Wicked 11:5

Wickedness Of The Wicked
Proverbs 11:5

The righteousness of the blameless makes their paths straight,
but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness.

PCdc Commentary

Are carnivores carnivorous because they eat meat?
Or do they eat meat because they are carnivorous?
Regardless, they eat meat.

Are the Wicked wicked because they do wicked things?
Or do they do wicked things because they are wicked?
Regardless, they are brought down by their own wickedness.

On Calibration 11:1

On Calibration
Proverbs 11:1

The Lord detests dishonest scales,
but accurate weights find favor with him.

PCdc Commentary

Obviously, to intentionally cheat others is detestable.
But, what about inadvertently?
A moral system of weights and measures is required for precision.
Five pounds is five pounds.
When the measurement drifts from the standard,
the standard must be reinstated.
This brings us back to Proverbs 9:1-6
Wisdom, like weight, is absolute.
