Do not envy wicked men, do not desire their company; (Proverbs 24:1)

for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble. (Proverbs 24:2)

Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of the wicked, (Proverbs 24:19)

for the evil man has no future hope, and the lamp of the wicked will be snuffed out. (Proverbs 24:20)
