Proverbs 4:18

But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
– Proverbs 4:18

Verses 16 and 17 reveal the progression of the path of the wicked. The way of evil men begin with what seems a bright prospect (Proverbs 1:10-14), but progresses to slavery to sin (Proverbs 4:16-17) and finally to death (Proverbs 14:12; 16:25). In contrasts, the way of wisdom is like the sunrise that gives faint light at the first but continues to rise until it reaches full strength at the height of day.
