11. The wording in the KJV of Proverbs 11:31 is a little unclear. For our studies, please consider the following information before the question is asked.
The KJV says: “Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner” (Proverbs 11:31).

The ASV says:
“Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: How much more the wicked and the sinner” (Proverbs 11:31)!

The NKJV says: “
If the righteous will be recompensed on the earth, How much more the ungodly and the sinner” (Proverbs 11:31).

The word “recompensed” [Strong’s # 7999] means: “to receive the reward of deeds” (Gesenius's Lexicon). The same Hebrew word is later translated as “rewarded” in
Proverbs 13:13 and “reward” in Proverbs 25:22.

The word “recompense” is often tied to being judged and rewarded based on one’s deeds (
Psalms 18:24, Ezekiel 9:10, Ezekiel 22:31, Luke 14:14, II Thessalonians 1:6, and Hebrews 10:30).

To the question: What Scripture, in the New Testament, teaches the same point as Proverbs 11:31 (hint – near the end of I Peter 4)?
