The righteousness of the blameless will direct his way aright, But the wicked will fall by his own wickedness (Proverbs 11:5, NKJV)
Verse 5 is better read in connection with 11:3-6; these four verses have as their theme righteousness. With the righteous the following will be found: integrity, deliverance, blameless, and upright. Contrast that with perversity, wickedness, and unfaithfulness. All of this will be from two vantage points. First, the life one chooses to live and, second, how the Lord looks upon those who made their respective choices.
