The righteous and the wicked have very different goals
The desire of the righteous is only good,
But the expectation of the wicked is wrath.
Proverbs 11:23 (NKJ)
The righteous want peace, mutual respect, and safety.
The wicked covertly stir things up by manipulating other people to become enraged at each other.
Having sowed the seeds of the conflict, the wicked one walks away squeaky clean leaving others to cut and bite each other. And the righteous then have to clean up the mess, tend the wounded, and pay the bills which the abuser did not pay.
Here is Myles Coverdale’s sixteenth century translation of Prov 11:23, in modern spelling. This is the translation that is in the 1537 Matthew Bible.
The just labour for peace and tranquillity,
but the ungodly for disquietness. (link)

The Levite who cut his concubine into pieces and sent her body pieces out to the tribes of Israel as a ‘call for justice’ is an example of how abusers stir up conflict and walk away squeaky clean.
