The wicked person’s horror will come upon him,
but the desire of the righteous will be given to them. Bible see other translations

“wicked person’s horror will come upon him.” Proverbs 10:24 is one of the many “ideal” promises in the Word of God which would be fulfilled here on earth today if we lived in a godly world with godly people. We do not. The Devil is the god of this age (2 Cor. 4:4; 1 John 5:19), and so neither the wicked nor the righteous always get what they deserve in this life. This promise will only be fully fulfilled in the future.
