Proverbs 12:3

No one is established by wickedness,

    but the root of the righteous will never be moved.

Proverbs 12:3 ESV

Here, the author is focusing on the foundation of the wicked vs. the foundation of the righteous. Wickedness does not provide a firm foundation regardless of any appearance of stability or success that may come with it. In the end, it is unstable. On the other hand, the righteous sets his roots deep in the Lord, and they will not be moved.

David says it this way:

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,

    for my hope is from him.

He only is my rock and my salvation,

    my fortress; I shall not be shaken [moved in KJV].

On God rests my salvation and my glory;

    my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

Psalm 62:5-7 ESV
