no disaster can befall a wicked person


Explanation:
wygląda na parafrazę;
"No harm befalls the righteous, but the wicked have their fill of trouble" - http://bible.cc/proverbs/12-21.htm

--------------

BTW the English equivalent of the proverb you mention is: "No disaster can befall a wicked person" - http://jemiolka.blogspot.com/2010/12/christmas.html

Yes, I'd say there must be something true hidden behind this quote. It too makes me think of a proverb that no disaster can befall a wicked person. - http://forum.thefreedictionary.com/postst10929_War-never-tak...
