Why does Proverbs 12:21 state that " no harm" or "ill will" will fall upon the righteous?

We know that harm and ill will do fall upon the good and bad people. The disciples were somewhat righteous, and yet they had harm and ill will fall upon them. I know both good and bad people both suffer; harm and ill will fall upon them because we live in a fallen world from the time Adam and Eve were sent out of the garden of Eden.

Proverbs 12:1 - 28

ESV - 1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid. 2 A good man obtains favor from the Lord, but a man of evil devices he condemns.
