A righteous person hates a deceptive word,
but a wicked person will become a stench and display his shame. Bible see other translations

“become a stench.” This is a graphic and idiomatic way to say that wicked people will be hated.a Wicked people stink to the righteous. Interestingly, righteous people stink to the wicked (2 Cor. 2:16).
