A righteous person shows the way for his neighbor,
but the road of the wicked causes thema to wander astray. Bible other translations
Refers to the wicked people themselves

“causes them to wander astray.” The primary meaning of the phrase is that the road (“the way”) of the wicked leads the wicked people themselves astray, and then, of course, they lead the people who follow them to wander astray also.
