Shame may not be the right word

"The wicked see the righteous, and they feel shame. So in their anger they seek to tear down the righteous. They love their wickedness too much to cast it aside."

That was succinct.

No question about the tearing down part. Shame may not be the right word; presumes capacity therefor. They may just be tearing down what they are incapable of comprehending.

Like the helper monkey nearly killing the patient. (Best story I found on the ONT, by Weirddave.)
