Proverbs 10:7

King James Version (KJV)
Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

The memory of the just is blessed - Or, is a blessing.

But the name of the wicked shall rot - This is another antithesis; but there are only two antithetic terms, for memory and name are synonymous - Lowth. The very name of the wicked is as offensive as putrid carrion.
