That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous. For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it. But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
Solomon reveals the positive side of wisdom, it encourages companionship with those who are worthwhile and upright. When wisdom is applied to our life, righteousness and decency are rewarded now, as well as in the life to come.
