No grave trouble will overtake the righteous, But the wicked shall be filled with evil (Proverbs 12:21, NKJV). Trouble in what sense? Trouble seems to overcome many people who try to do what is right; so, what are we to understand? A couple of things might be in view. First, in the practical sense, those who live in accordance with what is right and virtuous have minimized opportunity to get in trouble, so they won’t be overcome by it. Those who have found themselves in difficult straits, they have learned the way out (1 Corinthians 10:13). Second, in the ultimate sense, those who reject God have greater trouble ahead! RT
