21 There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.
21 No harm overtakes the righteous, but the wicked have their fill of trouble.
21 No ill befalls the righteous, but the wicked are filled with trouble.
21 No evil can overwhelm a good person, but the wicked have their hands full of it.
21 No grave trouble will overtake the righteous, But the wicked shall be filled with evil.
21 No harm comes to the godly, but the wicked have their fill of trouble.

If men are sincerely righteous, the righteous God has engaged that no evil shall happen to them. But they that delight in mischief shall have enough of it.
