The Wicked Rejoice In Wrongdoing
Proverbs 2:14 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
14 who rejoice in doing evil
and delight in the perverseness of evil,
The wicked ones love most what is damaging to them and that will eventually result in their greatest pain. Nevertheless, they delight in their wrongdoing, especially enjoying the twisted lifestyle they have chosen. Paul describes similar ones, saying, “God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness. (Rom. 1:28-32) The thoughts of God that you have within his Word are the best counsel that you could ever desire in this fallen condition, which will help you to keep your joy under various difficult circumstances. For example, if you use godly wisdom, you can find protection from the wicked wrongdoers.
