The Lord will not allow the righteous soul to famish, but He casts away the desire of the wicked. (Proverbs 10:3)
Here we see a contrast between the righteous and the wicked – a common comparison that is made in the wisdom literature of Scripture. The soul of the righteous is not allowed to famish, while the desire of the wicked is cast away. The contrast, however, extends beyond the objects (i.e. the righteous and the wicked) to the actions of the LORD. There is something the LORD does and there is something He does not.
