The fear of Yahweh leads to life,
and the one who has it will sleep satisfied through the night and not be visited by evil. Bible

“sleep satisfied through the night.” Proverbs 19:23 is one of the many “ideal” promises in the Word of God. It was always God’s intention that people would get what they deserve in this life, and that is expressed in verses such as this one. This verse would be fulfilled here on earth today if we lived in a godly world with godly people, but people do not always get what they deserve. [For more on promises like this, see commentary on Prov. 19:5].

“visited by evil.” To not be “visited” by evil means that the person will not experience evil. [For more on God “visiting,” see commentary on Exod. 20:5].
