9 Oh let
the wickedness [ra`] of the wicked [rasha`] come
to an end; [gamar] but establish [kuwn] the just: [tsaddiyq] for
the righteous [tsaddiyq] God ['elohiym] trieth [bachan] the hearts [libbah] and reins. [kilyah] KJV-Interlinear
9 O let the
evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous; For the
righteous God tries the hearts and minds. NASB
Evil is the modus operandi of wicked people. Wickedness is the application of the fundamental principles of evil.
Evil teaches bad things and wickedness practices them.
All evil is bent on destruction, deceit, lies, cheating, crime, self-righteousness and so forth. Evil has no future, and offers no future for anyone. Evil is self-destructive and its end is self-destruction.
Praying for the elimination of evil and of evil doers is a valid prayer, for they only serve to ruin everything for everyone, including themselves.
Gods plan of holiness consists of righteousness and justice, His righteousness and His justice. It is the absence of evil and its practices. Gods policy of truth seeks fairness for all, security for all, prosperity for all, happiness for all, meaning and purpose and fulfillment in life for all.
Truth gives everyone the same equal chance to excel to the maximums of life, where everyone can be a winner.
Evil plays favorites, applies bias, promotes prejudice, establishes classes or distinctions between people, allows only one to come first and all others to lose, makes life difficult for all, and gives no hope for anyone.
Evil is incapable of generating a good life for anyone.
Truth, is more than capable of making anyone a winner, regardless of their circumstances of life.
Evil can do nothing.
God is capable of doing anything.
Evil is not able to do good.
God is not able to sin, and able to not sin.
