7 The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.
7 The name of the righteous is used in blessings,
7 The memory of the righteous is a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot.
7 A good and honest life is a blessed memorial; a wicked life leaves a rotten stench.
7 The memory of the righteous is blessed, But the name of the wicked will rot.
7 We have happy memories of the godly, but the name of a wicked person rots away.
